Honest and serious question, do you think if they used the rear brake while using the same amount of front brake that this wouldn't have happened?

I think so but I really don't know for sure, the stoppie is caused for too much front brake. right? You are supposed to start with the rear brake and then apply the front brakes.

What exactly happened here?. Hope both riders are OK.

there was enough straight left he should have begun braking with the rear, then use the front and modulate it.

Or lock the rear and modulate the front if it was really that bad.

ArkansasDave, seriously, have you ever started braking with a rear brake then the front?

another serious question, have you ever had the privilage to lock up your rear brake???

I have and it does wonders.

SO seriously do you even ride on the streets?
