It is still possible to do a stoppie with the BMW ABS, almost at will with the older version on the R1100RSA.
I have elevated the rear on my 07 K1200GT, Bambi's Dad decided to jump out in front of us on the expressway when we were doing about 70, (2 up). My riding partner, said he saw brake lights, 6" of air under the tire and then Bambi's Dad. Damn deer had to stop and look at us until we were stopped before it moved. At least the rest of his family was not along.
At very slow speeds you can lock the front, aka at a crawl < 2 mph, as you move forward at a stop sign.
