Quit trying to complicate what he is saying. If you do what he said, you should not be in too hot for the turn if you did your breaking before and set up.

Go to sleep.

A noob will most likely panic, fixate on something and run off the road

That is assuming no one takes the time to teach the basics

99% of the time, the best thing to do is look thru the turn, gas it and lean.

In those 1% instances where you need to suddenly stop while turning, it is too late to learn how to brake and you'll mostly likely take a dirt sample.

What we were trying to discuss before being dragged so far off in left field is simple guidelines for Noob rides.

A noob ride is set up around basic rules; one of those is at or below the SL in turns, whatever speeds the slowest rider is comfortable with.
So the panic braking in a turn shouldn't come into play, unless they are following too close or not paying attention. In which case it's too late.

He seriously sounds like a long time cruiser rider who is afraid of the front brake. At least that is how it comes thru from his posts.

I'm an old cruiser rider, and I use the front brakes more because it's a lot cheaper to do a front brake job.

Why is it cheaper? 4 pads up front and only 2 out back. 2 rotors up front and 1 in the rear.

Cruiser.. single front rotor... not sure on cruisers but do you have to take off the wheel to do brakes?

Again, i have been riding it all. Started on dirt, then had a sears allstate in high school, then my first cruiser. Picked up sportbiking in my 30's just street, been to the track a handful of times. Just because I emphasize rear brakein a turn?

You all seem quite egotistical bout yout knowledge. Im just offering my advi e in those pani situations and all of a sudden Im this "chaps wearing scooter guy".

Immature really.

I was just being funny, in tone with this thread, but yes, only a single rotor on my Deluxe front end.

And I am not a "wrench" so I've never done a brake job, but anytime the rear wheel was off, I would have them replace the rear pads. For all I know, you can replace the rear pads with the rear wheel on, but I was under the impression you couldn't (or that it was much easier with the wheel out of the way).

It wouldn't surprise me if I have that wrong. You'll never hear me in a serious mechanical conversation.

I'm one of those "enthusiasts" who realizes motorcycle mechanics kid's need new shoes, and so I try to throw them my business instead of DIY.

Carry on shipmates.

Your entire attitude across multiple posts about not using the front brakes in a turn.

Comments about throttling up to increase lean, how you went so slow in a turn the bike fell over

Recommending over and over tapping the rear brakes in a turn to slow in a panic situation, versus instead steering thru the turn, or better yet slowing prior to entry

Arguing over body position which you apparently equate to hanging off versus proper body position on a bike period

And then carrying on thru 15 pages of a Noob Ride Guideline where braking in a curve has absolutley no bearing at all.
