I use the drag method sometimes. Don't know what you mean by "I know the front can apply more force than gravity can handle,"

When working in the lab both CS and EE kiddos would ask me why the compiler was 'broken'.



My degree is in history with a minor in philosophy. It wouldn't have taken much to be at the top of those classes.

Nevermind, hadn't gotten down to the follow-up yet. Too bad.

Default Re: When to Use Rear Brake Only?

Perfect post on true emergency situation on a sportbike. If you aren't doing a full stoppie, meaning you might have enough space to stop the bike without putting the rear wheel in the air, you might think that you should start with both brakes. However, the only times I've done this in panic situations I have slid the rear tire unnecessarily.



You get 0% braking off the rear tire if you're in a true panic situation as Buz said, so why start adding possibilities of sliding the rear?

Default Re: ABS

I think "in controlled conditions" is a key. Out there in the real world I suspect it's pretty hard for most mortals to threashold brake effectively when the semi doing 20 mph less than you suddenly cuts you off and there's no where to go. If I ever do get a new bike, ABS will be one of my criteria. We have to ride in the rain a LOT here in S. FL, especially in the summer.

Default Re: Ok. Good tip.

Ya think so?



I dont think so. I am sure it was brought to him by the Oracle at Delphi, or the great Oz or 1-800-PSYCHIC or anyone but that GMP charlatan.



I suppose I should rephase...



How is it that you came upon this site? Are you affiliated with them? or did you just stumble on it when searching for riding tips yourself?
