Is ABS the saviour safety experts suggest?



Despite its much-lauded safety benefits, ABS may not be your saviour in a motorcycle crash because many riders donít have time to even use their brakes before crashing.

That is one of the startling findings of a real-world global report called The Dynamics Of Motorcycle Crashes : A Global Survey of 1578 Motorcyclists.

Written by motorcycle-riding road safety researchers, it collected feedback from 1578 riders in 30 countries, with 126 from Australia, who had all crashed in the past 10 years.

I guess that's good then... :thumbs

I don't think they are saying it doesn't help at times...it's just that it may not be the great "saviour" that our safetycrats would like us to believe...Probably a bit like the compulsory wearing of Fluoro vests by learners in Victoria... :crackup

Where's that can of worms emoticon when you need it?  :fp

We may all be on the same wave length, but there are no official (Police or Government) stats, if there was no crash.
