I see you have a new founded "crush" on me, obviously somewhere at somepoint you got a little butthurt. You know very well youre welcome to give other feedback about the crash but doesnt seem like you could do that very well. but hey, if you see those guys out in level 2...

He was in a straight, If he locked up his rear brake he would have just slid rather than endoed, tracker number 302.

Try it.

You are welcome for your lesson. Now take it to the track!

However, still using the rear brake in conjunction with front would have done wonders.

The rear brake on a sportbike is only capable of ~10% of the braking force of the front. 1 tiny rotor with a single piston caliper vs 2 large rotors with 4 piston calipers. 10% is with the rear UNLOCKED. Locked...

Well, let's just say that he would have hit her either way. Just at a slightly slower speed.

Lock the rear, modulate front.

ABS prevents endos? ABS prevents wheel lock. No lock in an endo.
