Cool Ahhhh

The stunt world has been doing this for quite sometime now. Mick Doohan had started making the rear brake (thumb brake) popular back in the eighties, after is horrific accident. You can buy a thumb brake mounted on the handle bar from Yoyodenti.com

Miguel Duhamel used a left mounted thumb brake. I remember watching the race at infineon the year he did that nasty highside and the onboard showed him using it. Cant remember why I wasnt at the race, unless that was one of the rain outs ran on mondays.
