It's all fun and games till the front washes out due to slick road conditions or tire conditions. It's like saying a 2 wheel drive car has better traction than a 4 wheel drive. There is a balance and you don't have to think about it if you have practiced it enough. Muscle memory is an important thing to develope in this case. People who have put in enough saddle time have far better reaction time to things like this AND are far less likely to overreact.

My advice to the op start practicing using your front brake. Each time you try it pull it in a little harder and you will be amazed at how fast you can stop and next time you will not panick
so when does he learn to use the rear brake?

let alone the shorter stopping distance when using both brakes.

typo's and spelling seem to be an issue today...sort of like comparing 2wd and 4wd traction to a motorcycle braking... not even on the same planet in concepts,,,, next thing someone is going to start talking about trikes and their geometry... makes about the same amount of sense...

Not much!


.
do you gave google? look it up.....

not much mau be enough distance that you don't hit a fender vs embedded in it

why do moto gp bikes have rear brakes (you do know what moto gp bikes are? )


your a catalyst in why the board has gone to , people w/ little to no knowledge talking out their . but doing alot of talking.

Yes it is, the point was, use the contact points to your advantage. If you have two wheels touching the ground use them to your advantage. I guess a better analogy would have been to just cut the rear brake lines on your car. Either way I'm surprised you didn't get my point.

No biggy I should have clarified the whole traction thing with more of a contact patch analogy.

Going to an empty parking lot and practicing emergency braking situations is worth its own weight in gold.
