I was riding on a two lane road in the center of a small town, going about 35mph. There was a line of traffic come toward me. One of the cars decided to take a left turn into a driveway right in front of me. I was shocked for a second (I couldn't believe he was going to do it). I leaned on the horn and slammed on both brakes. Based on past experience (and I have 44 years of riding experience), I anticipated seizing both wheels, smashing down to the left, and careening into his front bumper. Instead, I stopped like I never stopped before - perfectly upright, no skids, and no loss of control. I stopped about two feet before the side of his car, which was still executing a left turn. The bozo never noticed me. He looked pretty old; I suspect he was half blind. The moral of this story: ABS may have saved my life yesterday. How did I ever do without it?
