2015 f3 800 ABS question

just broke 600 miles today ..

I started to test out some hard braking since I will be going to the track
on monday..

I noticed the abs activated almost every time..
I was not on cold tires, this was after riding 40 miles or so down twisty roads.

is this a result of the ABS being very sensitive?
or is it activating because the rear tire may have came off the ground?

I have it in rain mode and ABS N. per break in period specs.

If you are going on track put your abs on the sport mode as a minium

Normal is over cautious for road use. I keep mine on for road and find it kicks in when ridden hard

You can't use it in normal on track... You'll cook every corner where it comes in too soon

Yup. Agreed.. set it today.. however as my luck would have it, it's supposed to be a wash out tomorrow, if that's the case then my bike is staying in the trailer..
