For some reason people think if they use the front brake they will flip over it actually takes a bit of work to get the back end up.....

What was your mistake?

Getting on a bike you didn't know how to ride in the first place.

i like to think of myself as a humble person. i dont want to sound like a "know it all" b/c truelly, i don't. but seriously, ive learned on the r1 that riding out a not so fun situation is better than doing the panic thing, i have also come across 1 incident on the KaMasaki, but over the last two years i've learned to NOT panic and most of the time it fixes itself, take a slight head shake for example, if it starts shaking, just let the bars float in your hands, DON'T tense up, stay relaxed and it'll straighten up, just keep on the gas or the brake and you'll be good. just my personal exp.

when that kinda happens dont panic. just know that you can pull yourself through the situation. like the other day i was backing it in to a u turn and i was goin waaay to fast, i just followed through wit with what i had started and the paint is still shiney. have confidence in yourself . and use your front brakes the back is just there in case you go flyin down the hill in the grass at oakhill oh wait i didnt hit any brakes just jumped a berm oh nevermind

either use the rear brake a LOT and figure out how to use it or don't use it at all. front brake will stop the bike pretty friggin fast.

edit: I re read some of the comments about going over the front... thats not gonna happen if you have your weight positioned correctly on the bike!
If you are smashing the rear brake and sliding forward enough to bring the back end of the bike up, I want to say that it would probably do the same thing even with the rear wheel locked.
squeeze at the front lever, don't grab... and a tip I learned from a book on motorcycle safety was to keep your right foot a bit further back on the peg so that just the tip of your toes are low on the brake pedal. that way you flex your ankle just like you would in a car. It helps you resist the urge to stomp the pedal and lock up the rear. Plus, at least in my case, it wears out my leg a lot less. 90% of the time though just riding around I am not using my rear at all, or at least, if at all its at like 10% of braking power or less.

people dont realize how little back brake it takes to lock it up.. I always use the front brake as my primary stopping mechanism.. once i'm slowing to a stop i use the back the last portion of the stop if at all.
