Re: ABS saved my and a Dog.Brakelights stayed on .
Something kind of similar with a dog happened to me last week - a big black lab / boxer mix was at the side of a secondary 4 lane road sniffing something in the grass, oblivious to a lot of traffic going by about 50 mph. I was wary he might dart out and sure enough he started out in front of the car in front of me. I lay on MY horn and he damn near jumped out of his skin and pulled back just in time to avoid being struck by the car in front of me. The car didn't even hit the brakes.
In addition to the ABS I also love the horn in this bike!! It's a lot louder than my Chevy truck.
