HAHA, both of my scooters have double disc brakes on the front and steel braided brake lines stock. And the KYMCO has wave rotors stock as well. What was your point?

His point is that steel braided brake lines and wave rotors don't help you stop any quicker.

This.

Lower level road racers think the back brake is just a fashion accessory. Until you really listen to what the best of the best have to say in very technical and sophisticated terms not often found in the public circles. All of the top riders in MotoGP use rear brake to varying degrees. To allow your front brake to slow your rear rotating mass of wheel and tire, as opposed to allowing your motor or rear brake to do the same, means you are just working that front tire a little bit harder.

Good job on the save. That could have been super nasty if you didn't get it under control. The other 2 riders in close proximity owe you a beer for keeping a cool head under pressure.

Great save, and a Perfect use of space, best of all possible outcomes.

Glad you didn't hit that wall. I never liked it there and now they have those houses, so stuck with it.

As for rear brake mid air effects. This video has always stuck in my mind.


The iom tt guys use their rear brake to control their wheelies with. Here the rear tire is already in the air and it jumps out abruptly to the right with no apparent explaination. Unless you conjure the rider got on the rear brake too late (wheel already up) and too hard (transferring lots of spinning momentum), and pitched him sideways...

never knew there could be such an intense debate over the rear brake, with a little scooter hate and sweet stoopies thrown in as well... all in all good thread

Straight from me. I was wondering why he didn't use his rear brake. the rider commented he usually does in this corner.

Go on, thinking I suggested him use rear brake while his rear was in the air. It sure was silly all the corresponding comments. Thus my original reply, "dumb question."
At that speed, with the back end coming up that fast, you'd have to be Marquez or Rossi to save that bike.

"Use the back brake." C'mon.
