I believe he meant the brake can make the tire skid.

Looks like we're back to multiple postings of the same links again.



And the slf-moderation.

Default Re: When to Use Rear Brake Only?

this is nothing new, but i'll type it anyway before hitting the sack...

So when would anyone want to use the rear only and why?"


among other times, when navigating through obstacles at very slow speed (in a parking lot, or when lane-splitting, for example). my msf instructor - a 20-year veteran of the florida motorcycle highway patrol (h-d road kings) - made it very clear to us that the back brake helps keep your bike upright in tight, slow turns. YMMV.



"Does the type of bike matter?"


yes. i would take an advanced training course from the MSF to get instruction on correct braking techniques for your specific bike.

Default Gyroscopic forces...DUH!

FINALLY someone breaks it down for me. Thank you so much for the concise explanation. This is something I've struggled with for 7 years. I think I'll go practice u-turns Sunday.
