I was on a four-lane highway in the right lane. I was following a bit too close and someone in front of the car in front of me was slowing to turn off the road. I was going to veer left into the other lane and at the last second saw the glimpse of the other car in the left lane so I had no place to go and I had to hit the brakes hard. The ABS kicked in on the DL 650 and it evened everything out just perfectly.

Happened really fast. Lesson learned, proper following distance a must. I had pretty good distance, just needed more attention and I think I was enjoying the ride a bit too much. So thankful for ABS today!

I was a bit ambivalent about ABS, but after coming out almost unscathed from my recent head-on with a semi I'm a big fan. It happened so quickly I have no memory of making any conscious decision about braking, but I almost pulled up in time!
