ABS works!!

It was the bane of motorcyclists everywhere and it suddenly
appeared in the lane in front of my wife. Winifred was travelling
at 50+ in the S6 when a VW bus pulls out in front of her.

She slammed the brakes and the ABS did its job. When I saw
her afterwards, she was still pumped from the adrenalin rush.
She said there was never any loss of control, unlike her '93
Acura which twitches a bit under full braking w/ ABS.

She indicated to the driver of the microbus that she was okay
and that Audi was #1. The guy was a 2-striker (old man w/
hat _and_ in a microbus).

After a couple of scotches, we got her settled down and had a
nice Valentine's Day dinner...

great cars.... ;)
