"Mopeds dont have abs."
I was talking to a guy in Wyoming who once hit a moose while riding a Goldwing down the highway.
He did have ABS, and I'm pretty sure that his conscious mind didn't want to ram into an 1800 pound moose with his silly, giant motorcycle. No time to choose there.
So, yes, you're totally right. I don't think Goldwing-rider really thought about popping a wheelie to hit the moose with his back tire either, though.
