Since my time on the RT, I have logged more than a few miles on the K1200RS, which has the "sporting" version of the Integral ABS. This system lets "more sporting" riders use the rear brake independently—the foot pedal operates the rear brake only, and the front lever activates both the front and the rear. This system eliminates the problems at low speed, and allows you to work the rear brake against the throttle, letting you slow slightly in a corner without chopping the throttle and dropping the nose. For an old dog like me, whose neural system is irrevocably trained to use the brakes independently, it's a far better system. In an emergency stop, where you should just mash all the brakes anyway, there's no practical difference. And day-in, day-out, the "sporting" system, available on the R1150R, the R1150GS and the K1200RS, feels far superior. It would be a logistics headache, but if I were BMW, I'd find a way to give riders their choice of systems, rather than arbitrarily deciding that R1150RT riders don't know what they're doing, brakewise, and that K1200RS riders do.
