Re: So I dropped my friends bike

you got $70 to throw away
if someone dropped your R1 would you like for them to pay for the damage, even if it is a footpeg, remember, you cant ride with a broken peg... depending on how far back it broke.

Re: So I dropped my friends bike

the amount of pressure applied to brake should not be jerky but smooth like a bell shape curve. when you apply brakes its like the begining of the curve until you reach the maximum pressure. when you release the brake you shouldnt just LET GO, but ease off with the same amount as when you applied.

look at this bell shape graph and see of this clears things up cuz i cant expliain things well on riding techniques.
