I would love to have ABS on my Jackpot. I think it's a worthwhile feature that is long over due for mainstream operation on bikes produced in America.

2014 Cross Country (Two-Tone Suede Supersteel & Black) Chrome D&D exhaust, Power Commander V, Lloydz air intake, Klockwerks tinted flare windshield.

*sold*2008 Jackpot (color midnight cherry with a ton of mods)

Interesting that the first and only go-down they show is a low sider caused by getting too hot in a turn. ABS would have done nothing to save that situation.

I felt like I had full control of the Vision while braking hard....fortunately, I have never had to use them in a "catastrophic" type of event. I have had to put on the brakes pretty hard to avoid someone that pulled out in front of me and I felt in complete control of the bike - including steering her the direction I wanted to go.

My 08 Hammer did not have ABS and I had to pull the same maneuver and nearly skidded out of control.

Thanks for that, Spidy. I was curious as I have never heard from a rider who has experienced the use of ABS brakes.

I can't say I "had to" use it, but it has engaged a few times stopping fast, and a bunch of time during paractice stops.
