    hi outhere,

    has anybody experiance with braking in a corner with the vfr /abs?

    sounds like little bit of a silly question, but:

    i know what happens when i need to brake hard in a corner with a car.
    i also have some painfull expieriance when doing so with a bike witch has no abs.
    hence i don´t want to give it a try with my brand new vfr/abs. ;D.

    where somebody outhere already forced to do so?

    regards from good ol´ germany & happy new year

    I wouldnt recommend braking in a corner but then there is always the emergency. It definitly feels different brakeing leaned over with abs, I dont like it, it has the same feel to me as a tire thats cupped.

    Unless you are at the point of locking up the tires, braking in the turn isn't really any different with ABS. If you are at that point, and you really do have time to notice that the ABS feels like cupped tires, you are more calm than I would be at that point. Plus, if you're doing it that often, you are doing it wrong.
