I recently got a Street Twin, it has 5000km on it over the past 4 years, I've put another 5000km on it in the past two months. It has ABS but I'm so used to squeezing the brakes that I can't bring myself to grab them suddenly enough to test the ABS.

That's the same way the law is in TX. And if you had hit the other driver you would be at fault, it's a rear end collision. You have to always be able to stop in case the driver in front stops or slows. Basically, sounds like you were following too close or going too fast or both. Fwiw most people are always following too close and also going too fast. That's why rear end collision are so common.
