Why you want to disable it? I guess locking up the rear can be fun...but I'd love to have ABS on my street bike. I think it's a great safety feature. My only complaint is cost...when bikes are getting more and more expensive as it is.

Well ridden non ABS still stops better than the ABS models.

Anyone can make a mistake in a panic situation though (which is the street); and ABS would minimize that risk, no?

I'd hold on on this for a while.

A vote of the European Parliament doesn't necessarily mean that it's going to beome law.

If it does, why worry? ABS gives a useful insurance policy for most riders most of the time, and most ABS systems are de activated by nothing more complicated than pulling the fuse.
