If I had not learned how to emergency brake while cornering at Awesome Cycles I would be on my way to the ER right now.

Thanks guys

Be safe out there.

Also a trackday can help you with knowing what you can and cannot do on a bike.
If interested lemme know and I'll get you hooked up with a td.
A track day is next on my list but I am still just getting used to my bike. I've only put about 1,700 miles on it so far and riding less than two months.

Glad to hear things came out ok!

I've been telling people for years that the MSF class will teach you things that can/may save your life on two and four wheels!

When measuring parts with a micrometer, somethings you have to hold your tongue a certain way to get an accurate measurement. I guess braking requires a different technique!
