ABS braking on sportsbikes

I was able to ride the Honda CBR1000RR and CBR600RR with ABS at Eastern Creek yesterday – very different and will take a while to get used to it 100 percent. What do you guys think of ABS brakes on sportsbikes? I found it good for the rear because I could actually put some firm pressure on it under brakes without it locking up, but it did affect trail braking a little bit. Need more time with it.
