    2022 r1250gs (with select pkg) abs ?

    Folks, I've read the owners manual from cover to cover. I need to be able to turn off the ABS at times. I can't figure out how to. Anyone able to point me in the correct direction?

    These are for different bikes, but maybe there's some consistency in the way BMW set the ABS up. If this doesn't help, wait for owners to stop by:

    Perhaps BMW has decided to not allow the ABS to be turned off. Here is the explanation in the manual for the R1250 GS Adventure Model. Seems like ABS Pro has been refined:

    Evolution of ABS to ABS Pro

    Until now, the BMW Motorrad
    ABS helped ensure a very high
    degree of safety for braking
    with the motorcycle upright
    and travelling in a straight line.
    Now ABS Pro offers enhanced
    safety for braking in corners
    as well. ABS Pro prevents the
    wheels from locking even under
    sharp braking. ABS Pro reduces
    abrupt changes in steering
    force, particularly in panicbraking
    situations, counteracting
    the vehicle's otherwise natural
    but undesirable tendency
    to straighten up.

    ABS intervention

    Technically speaking, depending
    on the riding situation
    ABS Pro adapts ABS intervention
    to the motorcycle's
    bank angle. Signals for rate
    of roll and rate of yaw and
    lateral acceleration are used to
    calculate bank angle.
    As the motorcycle is heeled
    over more and more as
    it banks into a corner, an
    increasingly strict limit is
    imposed on the brake-pressure
    gradient for the start of brake
    application. This slows the
    build-up of brake pressure to a
    corresponding degree. Additionally,
    pressure modulation is
    more uniform across the range
    of ABS intervention.
    Advantages for the rider
    The advantages of ABS Pro for
    the rider are sensitive response
    and high braking and directional
    stability combined with
    best-case deceleration of the
    motorcycle, even when cornering.
