Very Strange

While out for a ride this morning...looked down and noticed my ABS RED light was lit up while traveling at 45 MPH.
Pulled over and shut the engine down, then started it up went on my way.
A minute or two later...the RED light was on again.

Anyone know what this indicates?

ps: 2007 DL650A

Well, guess I should use the search function first !!!
Seems the ABS bolt on front wheel was loose.

Sounds like my old 1100RT-P beemer. Little things like battery voltage or the gap on the sensors would throw it off.
My 04 Wee doesn't have ABS and when I stand on the rear brake I skid. Kinda entertaining sometimes. With ABS you forget the sensation.
My 08 800ST BMW has a funky ABS that drops out when the rear wheel bounces. That's weird too.

Weak battery will light that guy up. I'd check battery/charging system.
