Im one of the lucky ones to have a motorcycle test court at my nearby DMV office, which they encourage people to use on the weekends and after hours when they are closed.
There is a "braking" area to test your skills, your post reminds me that I have not taken the new Road King and tried it yet. I do have ABS on this bike, honestly one of the requirements I had for a new bike.
Im curious if, on the day I picked it up (no less,Ha) I had to slam stop on the interstate as traffic backed up. I made both front and rear tires chrip and leave a small rubber patch for the front and rear tire. I didnt feel the ABS kick in but I am assuming it had to because damn, I stopped so quickly and straight as an arrow, it was either that or I made the perfect stop on my own, which I would question as I too, have started to slide the rear tire a few times when I had the 1300 tourer. SO I am unsure, maybe next warm day I will get over to the DMV and try the RK out.
