and how fast were u going when u did that? lemme guess on an indestructible honda with parachutes and several add-ons and abs? slamming front breaks at 20mph vs 80mph are not the same at all. doesn't take a physics genius to understand weight transfer. fast enough like the video and you WILL flip over!! it's not rocket surgery.

Too bad you've never ridden with me, noob. One day I've owned a CBR600RR ABS and 1000RR ABS.

You have no idea what you're talking about, but please, don't let that stop you. Looking for a dry test, but here you go.

The driving experience is quite interesting, because it rarely happens inhibit anyone from a speed in excess of 100km / h only through the rear brake pedal wduszenie to the end. In this case, it is quite normal. But you have to admit that Jednoslad is very stable even during hard braking. There is a tendency to nosing, and to block the wheel is not even the question. The whole is held very firmly, calmly and without fireworks, and yet that was the point
Nosing?

Sure it's a good idea to have, and I know people who won't ride the track between jobs because of no insurnace. Requirment, that.

so you wrecked at the track and want another rider to pay your bills?

Dude, once you go out there, the risk is all on you, I don't care how stupid someones action is. It's a track, you assume all the risk....even if they hit the out of you

Its not so much how hard, its how fast one grabs the brakes. Squeeze them and you slow to a stop. Grab them and the BIKE will slow but the RIDER sitting atop it will not. Over you go.


In my case I was already carying the stoppie and slowing comfortably it wasn't until the car STOPPED sideways in front of me which ate up all my attention and forced me to hand the controls to old man panic, whom we all know is a ham fisted rider.

ABS bikes can do stoppies,( depending on the how the software and sensors are wired, since SOME bikes allow for differences in front vs rear wheel sensor speed)

The Honda ABS doesn't take over any control unless you hit the brakes so hard that the tires stop rotating. You don't know you even have ABS unless you try to lock up the brakes, which is impossible. Like I said, squeeze the lever as hard as you can and all the bike does is stop. If you brake normally, even hard braking on the track, it's just like a non-ABS bike. The ABS doesn't kick in until it senses wheel lock

It is a good idea for everyone to have but some people either can't afford it or whatever. I was just pointing out that someone who chose to not buy health insurance because their sport bikes and track time budget didn't allow for it have little sympathy from me.

My health insurance payment is way less than my bike insurance...

Most likely because you have a job that pays for most of it.
