Obviously, ABS is a feature you don’t want to screw about with. Well, not under normal circumstances. Locking wheels on the road is not advisable; but when you’re taking a sharp downhill hairpin, sliding the back end out on loose skree, it can be a lot of fun.
With this in mind we’ve made a minor mod to our bikes so we can have a little more control while off-road. By adding a toggle switch we can now de-select the ABS allowing the rear wheel to lock. Once back on the grey-stuff we switch the ABS back on.
