I mounted my Eastern Beaver switch on my Richland Rick switch plate beside my Datel Voltmeter. Works like a charm and I think it looks good.

Those are more like it. Problem is they're rated at 10 A, and Eastern Beaver says you need something rated at least at 15 amps.

Since it's a 25A fuse in the mix, I prefer a switch to a 30A relay.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s

I agree, a 30A relay would be a good way to go. Plus that way just about any switch could be used.

I have tried riding with the ABS on on dirt, not fun, specially down hill, I am talking about serious off road and adv stuff, on a hard packed I keep it on.
Bottom line, it dpends on hoe aggressive you are

Didn't Malcolm Smith describe down hills as flats with gravity?
Some guys make it look easy and some not so easy. I've never enjoyed a steep dirt hill and I was on a smaller dirt bike even.
I hate steep inclines because if you loose it you have to turn around and try again.
