Riding my 2010 V-Strom to work today, I got to the first set of lights and tried to pull up behind the car stopped there, but the ABS on the front brake kicked in and I may have well have been on rails as I coasted into the back of the car. After exchanging details (bike left running) I tested the brakes a few times then rode to work with it behaving perfectly. Why did this happen?! It was dry asphalt and I was going slow with plenty of stopping room. The ABS should not have done anything. It often kicks in on the back brake when I'm down-shifting, and settles within a second, but I've never had it act on the front brake in the month I've owned this bike. Only thing I can think of is that the ABS reacted to a bump in the road or something and ended up being self-perpetuating for a few seconds. It's a very flimsy explanation and I'd like a better one if anyone can shed some light.
