practice spots

what's a good spot to practice emergency braking, low(ish) speed clutch ups, etc. where you're not likely to get harrassed? or if no one wants to give up their spot, are there any special techniques to identify good areas with google maps?

For braking practice I start at very low speeds (2-5mph) and even after practice am wary of practicing any where near 30mph. Therefore, I just use dead end neighborhood streets and cul-desacs and make sure no one is behind me. Usually I don't even see another car on the street. I also often do one on the end of the driveway before heading out on the street. I only go up and down a street once before moving on to other streets.

If you are in a large parking lot be careful to circle the lot a few times between stops to cool off your brake rotor. I did too many quick stops in a row and overheated mine (it was hot enough to burn my finger). If it does get hot, then keep moving until it cools off.

My front brake got VERY hot. I really don't like to get them that hot as I warped a car brake rotor once coming down pikes peak. Half way down the mountain the rangers made us stop where they put their fingers near our brakes and told us the brakes were getting hot and that we should use more engine braking and less brake pedal.

I've been down pikes peak. That was true. Smelled the brakes on just about every car coming down. However. I have beat on my brakes for hours in a parking lot endo after endo and wheelie after wheelie riding the brakes. They can handle it. I've seen people have rotors so hot they are glowing. There are big differences in the way the typical car rotor is made and the way a sport bike rotor is made.

Yup motorcycle rotors are not shoved into a wheel so they get plenty of air. Also most bikes come with drilled rotors which help with over heating.
