Know your, and your machines limits...ride within them. That includes the active practice of scan/identify/predict/decide and execute. I like the alert state that riding requires of me and find that loose sand, oil, head up their ass drivers, or the cross traffic idiot squeezing the last bit ofyellow (red) out of a changing light have not caught me by surprise in many years of riding. ABS do NOTHING until you have exceeded the limits. Sure, we all lose focus at times, but by the time you realise you just rolled thru a stop sign, are in conflict with a left turning car in the intersection, or are too hot entering the curve it is too late for abs to change that anyway. Keep your eyes open and your brain in gear. Take a safety course. Practice. Ride to live
