    You guys are correct.
    Modern brakes with ABS is great stuff.
    In a "situation" you can just clamp on full brakes, all the way.
    That part is now out of the equation. No more " feathering " the brakes. Full Brakes. Hard as you can.
    Then you can concentrate on swerving to miss your obstacle.
    I practice this several times a year as it is violent and you've got to grip the tank with your legs with all your might so you can still use your arms to turn toward the clear.
    It's hard to not get thrown forward at full brakes, takes some practice so you know what to expect, and then to still be able to use your arms in the full brace mode.
    Ride safe in 2021
