You should be able to bend yOur handle bar back with some muscle or a BFH. If your front end is twisted than you will have to loosen your upper and lower triple tree clamps and bring your forks back in alignment.

Pay attention when lights change. I find it hard to see how you can lock the rear unless you panicked because you didn't see the light change. I live by westheimer and kirkwood. Remember more front less rear since your all your weight is shifting to the front and unloading the rear tire

Sorry to hear you fell mike, glad your ok man.

If you know how to use it properly, the rear brake can be an advantage to you. (On the street)

Now that you got that out of your system - You should practice EMERGENCY BRAKING - Emergency braking CANNOT be done with the front brake only. When an emergency or "oh " moment occurs, you will be a lot more aware of the situation and the chance of you making a dumb error is less probable.

Try locking up your rear tire again, Experiment with both the clutch pulled in and the clutch released,

Notice how the dynamics change: With the clutch out and the engine pulling the rear wheel along, you should have a lot more control over the brake and it will be much less prone to locking.

Quote:


The geometry of the swingarm serves to pull the back of the bike down under braking-something you can use to your advantage.
Now add the front brake to the equation. You'll notice that the more front brake you use, the less effective-and harder to control-the rear brake is. It will lock up easier as weight transfer unloads the rear wheel. Some racers avoid using the rear binder on the track; they use so much front brake that the rear wheel is in the air, rendering the rear brake ineffective. In a basic stopping situation on the street, you want to use mostly the front brake with some rear. Using the rear brake, even slightly, will help to lower the center of gravity, adding stability to the situation and letting you brake harder in a panic stop. If the situation allows, touching the rear brake a half-second before the front will settle things more. Experiment to find what works best and is comfortable for you to execute with confidence.

Yeah, I was thinking really hard about how can it be possible that I lock the rear. I didn't panic and I use the same amount of pressure I've always been doing. Do you think it's the tires? The previous owner did burnouts (it's obvious in the tires). I'm guessing that could be a high possibility.

You think Moto gp bikes DON'T have rear brakes?

Why would the put them on there if they weren't using them?

My useless advice...

When in the rain try and avoid hard braking at a light. If it's yellow then gun it. I'm more worried about the tool in the 4000# car smashing into me than I am about running the light.

And as many others have said...use front brake when you can but practice the rear+front for the oh- moments.

Glad you're ok...

BTW, I work in the Galeria area and people are a disaster...be extra careful
