Have you tested them? I generally do that each year when the snow comes. It's amazing how well they work.

I wish I didn't.
Some years back I learned ti threshold brake. ABS is for people who haven't been taught that skill, and it does work.
"The skill in threshold braking comes from being able to linger just short of lock-up. To threshold brake well requires much effort and concentration. While it is usually the technique of choice, it is almost impossible to do if you panic."

I'm glad my motorcycles do not have ABS. Even if it were a free option, I would decline.
