If you watch other videos you'll see he actually had a limited time with the bike and had to get it back. So I may be wrong but I don't think he actually tried those things, but would if he owned the bike. Those without the abs don't have these problems. They say it would be hard to actually engage the abs in real life because of the break squeeze the bike has. IF you needed the abs on the road you would be glad you had it, but it makes me want to buy without abs.
On my 1000, there is more than 1 fuse for the ABS. I pull the one for the ABS electric motor to disable it. There's also one for the electronics which may well disable other electronic circuits.
Did such a ride with a group yesterday and one of the guys had a V300. Seems like a good bike for such riding.

Science...because we don't figure things out by praying.
