I'm a long ways from a luddite. If the tech was better developed and more clever, I'd be for it. I have nothing against it, even if I don't like too much added weight and complexity, but, I'm not even a good rider, and have had it let me down. I'm sure my personal ABS keeps me from reaching the last percent or two (or 10?) of braking, but I've never just had my hand completely release.

Truth be told, it's probably of benefit 90% of the time to aggressive/sliding riders, and 99% of the time to the rest of us, but the worst braking scare I ever had was due to ABS, so I'm throwing my revered logic out the door and opting out. I'm not trying to convince anyone else to do the same. My example is a poor one,
