Mine is the black ABS model. I have to say that I have never been in a
situation where the ABS saved my butt so I really can't tell whether it
makes a difference or not. I felt it kick in once while braking in some
loose gravel so I know it works. But you should probably not rely too
much on it and do things you otherwise wouldn't do on a non-ABS bike. On
a group tour to Romania earlier this year a ST 1300 rider slipped in
some loose sand and dumped his bike although he did have ABS.
That being said there are absolutely no problems in owning an ABS model.
Getting the wheels off and on requires some 10% more time and effort due
to the ABS, otherwise no problems. I had an intermittent ABS failure
once that lasted a few days. The ABS light would come on randomly while
riding but could be reset by stopping and restarting the engine. The
problem disappeared by itself before I got to look closer into it. Oh
yes, and when you order new front brake pads, don't forget to tell that
it is for the ABS Model. There is a difference between left and right
that I don't think is applicable to the non-ABS model...?
Good luck with your hunt for another GPZ. Good to hear your loyalty to
our beloved bike :)
