...then again, you ARE an MSF instructor...not to mention the fact that you've probably been riding a helluva lot longer than the newb who would grab (rather than squeeze) the brake when he gets nervous...nothing wrong with braking in and of itself...

Take you time bro and do me a big favor where some freakin gear!!!! Your F3 is a perfect bike for you to learn on (maybe a little too much even ) Tdubb's F3 has been real good to him as a learner after killing his brand new Daytona with only 89 miles or so on it:BangHead: :mumum:

look dude, we said it. grabbing ur brakes is destabalizing the bike when leaned over, but depending on how u do it u can get away with it. its really not that hard and if u look at those driver views for motogp and superbike guys, ull see that they are grabbing that front brake all the way until knees r down, i wouldnt try it unless ur an idiot like me and dont try that at the clovers cuz those light poles will rip ur head off. try it at msr so u have soft grass to slide on instead incase u fk up

when u r turning in an underpass at 20mph, even a moron wont go down even if he grabbed a handful of brakes, u r still an MSF instructor!

in case u never got it, we r, by default, talking about braking at much higher speeds. anyway i m out of here. i dont wanna lower my IQ more
