Thanks to the GTs Linked ABS....
Saying thank you here to the BMW ABS system......today I rode the GT to work and one hour ago I left for lunch and went for a little ride to the top of the nearby mountain, Fort Mountain, Ga.
On the way back to Ellijay and my office, I was tooling along about 60mph when a grayhair backed out of her drive way directly in front of me with two vehicles in the on coming lane.
I locked the front and rear brake and stopped just short of the ladys Acura SUV.... she did finally see me but stopped in the lane as I pulled to a stop...and she waved at me.
The GT stopped like glue and I'm happy that I practiced a few panic stops in a parking lot on the bike when I bought it a couple of months ago. It actually stopped so hard I have a little soreness in my wrists.
If I had been on my Harley, I would doubtfully have been able to stop.
