Nice wet ride to work this morning, and a great time to test out the anti-lock brakes. Since I am only half suicidal, I picked a wet, straight stretch and mashed the rear brake. The '08 SVS seamlessly went into anti lock mode with no skid. The frequency of the pulses was much higher than that on my truck, so there was no issue with controllability. I'm not sure I can force myself to try to put the bike into a front wheel skid, but I am sure that at some point a situation will do that for me.

glad to hear that you tested the limits of your skills and the bike's technology. not many people are trained and experienced to even think about it. the last time i practiced emergency/panic braking was around september last year on my xt250. drum brakes haha.
