It is an issue. Not everyone here goes to the track. If they are riding their.bikes out on the street they ought to learn it and use it. Msf baby wheres racer x

Yeah, I just started to read that thread. Fun read. I've seen the other "scooter" threads over the past few weeks or so.

I tell you what, when I rode street, on ANY type of bike.. I used the rear brake




....when coming to stops at lights/stop signs, or when cruising around casually. Figure I'd use up the rear pads instead of wasting $150/pair front Vesrah pads. In the 5 years I owned my K7 Gixxer, I went through like 3 or 4 pair of front pads, and finally installed brand new rear pads right before I sold it.

I didn't use them on the track, unless I ran off (which didn't happen too often). Also did not use them on my spirited rides on back roads. Again, you ride your ride, I'll ride mine.

Man you are looking at this wrong..... i have no hate for you at all..... you were thread jacking Lucar's thread so as your buddy i created this one so you can express your feelings freely without having the risk of being banned by the moderators for thread jacking. Lucar's thread was about helping noob riders on sport bikes and your debate was about using rear brakes on scooters

Just the past few weeks?? Man, he's been stirring that pot for a LOT longer than a few weeks!! Neil is just entertaining enough that I don't add him to my Blocked List, which has zero people.
