How many times do you have to hear it: Knuck riders get thrown out of bars, not over bars... Sheese.

The front brake on my Knuck couldn't throw Micky Mouse over the bars. Like I told Buz when he rode it: "Plan your stops!"

Dragging my feet through a cornfield is not exactly what I had in mind.

Since you weren't used to the foot drag stopping, the bars and grips took a tremendous beating!

He's handy to have around in biker bars if you decide to make fun of HD's puny 64hp motors though.
61 rwhp. Don't summon the Finnish demon, please.

I disconnected mine, and I feel a lot better.

The type of bike (mentioned above) will have some different answers. I've always used 4 on a planned stop, two to scrub off a little speed or in traffic and for some reason only my middle finger on the track to set up turn entry speed. The latter has never been practiced but just showed up when I was riding much harder than I ever would on the street.

When deciding between 2 and 4 fingers, I always ask myself this...Would I look good wearing this bike as a hat today? If the answer's no, I go with 2. 'Spose it's that way with most any modern braking system though.

(FWIW, I NEVER think I look good in a hat)
