There's no secret to what happened. I wrote the other thread about it being totalled. http://www.glocktalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=568351Originally posted by Rinspeed
Are you going to let us know what happened or is it a big secret.
Yes you can. You gotta jam on the brake pretty hard to activate the ABS. But hit the rear brake hard enough to activate a rear slide is no problem, especially when your bike is leaned over.Originally posted by DaisyCutter
Can you brake-slide the rear-end on an ABS equipped bike?
EDIT: (intentionally brake-slide)
Maybe the R1100S has that option, but none of the other bikes with the exception of the GS had the option. I can deactivate my Rockster's ABS but then the servo mechanism wouldn't work and that means up the creek without a paddle.Originally posted by ChaZ
When I read my BMW user's manual. I remember reading a part where you have to follow a sequence of action when turning on the ignition to manually turn off your ABS. Fnfalman, go read your BMW manual and I think you'll find it too.
An inline-four for moi? That's blasphemy!!! :clown: I test rode the K1200S and K1200R last year. They aren't my style. I'll wait for the HP2 version of the R1200S to come out, and yes, she's a comin'.Originally posted by ChaZ
Maybe you should trade your BMW for a new BMW along with your insurance for a new BMW. I do like boxer but I think you'll like K1200S better...
