Wasn't trying to give you hard time. I am always concerned about giving advice on items that could affect anyone's safety. In those terms, I truly believe that training, education, and experience should first be gained, then enhanced by technology. I worry about people seeking a crutch prematurely (not to say you are), and then being unable to deal with the actual situation in an emergency, regardless of the technology.
In the clip, it was noted that the rider who does most of the brake tests showed only a 4-5 meter difference which they attributed to experience. I would have to say that learning to ride and gaining experience has a greater impact upon the result than the technology, overall. The consensus is that ABS does help and I agree. I just don't consider it something designed to save you from imprudence.
In fairness, I will be getting my new bike in May of next year and it will have both ABS as well as, traction control. I look forward to it because as much as I may feel my reaction times haven't increased, good sense tells me perhaps a 62 year old could use a little help. In other words, I couldn't come up with that 5 meter difference of a 35 year old (duh). A man's got to know(and compensate for) his limitations, and I do.
