Not the technique they teach you in the MSF beginner's course which is 'ride over it.' They force you to practice it over and over with a 2x4.

Default Re: When to Use Rear Brake Only?

MSF "coaches" to use rear brake for slow speed manuevers. You're misunderstanding the exercise for rear brake use and combining it with what you learned for the quick stop on the last exercise on the previous day. Quick stop is your last exercise Sat. and slow speed manuevers are the first exercise on Sun.

Why does he keep bringing it up though? The first time I saw him claim that cruisers stop worse than sportbikes and you sent the link of the breaking distances which showed that the differences were purely bike by bike and not by category I figured that would be that. It's unfathomable that anyone could be so dumb.

He can give us lessons on how to 'lay her down' though, since we know he has learned how.

I think they've dropped that from the course. Which is bad, I believe.

Default Re: Stainless lines and RD350's

Check the crank seals on the RD. And for all the parts you'll ever need, contact Cindy @ Speed and Sport Yamaha in PA, (570) 784-6831 website: www.yamatopdog.com.



I had an R5 (piston-port). Scary fast for the size.

I took the course after I already had been riding for a couple of years in order to take it with my wife; that was two years ago, and the stick-crossing exercise was still in it.

A large, heavy, high-coefficient of friction weight, a strong rope or chain, and a milkcrate to "store" it all in are all a man REALLY needs to stop a Moto.........
