Sorry, can't do the ABS test either.
I have never owned a bike with ABS ;D
Therefore I was hitting the deck quite often until I started to understand how to use my brakes properly.

Well you're  better riders than someone relying on the ABS to regulate the brake force being applied.

This tread is intereating for me as a new rider. Well as soon as I start riding I will be new. I will not be doing any test yet though. My skill level is at 0 at the moment. Ok maybe 0,1 after reading intereating stuff like this and hearing opinions.

If you want to become a good rider gain as much experience as possible, without electronic aids. That stuff is there for the old toppies who have forgotten all their experience 😃
