Where's the instructional video that demonstrates how riding abreast makes you a better rider?

right, and showing them videos and articles about pros using the rear brake is the right way to teach these new riders?

This topic didn't need it's own thread, it's been beaten to death millions of times before, I figured you and your infinite googling/YouTube wisdom would have noticed?

New topic: show new riders YouTube videos of guys turning level 3 lap times and expect them to be able to accomplish the same feat because internet.

Proves the point, that there is a reason to use the rear brake doesn't it?

What are YOUR qualifications for 'teaching' new riders?

What proves the point?

I never claimed to have sufficient instruction skills, I actually use the rear brake but have not mastered it and don't have 100% confidence in using it?

While I would not suggest for a new rider to try to use a rear brake for max braking, I would emphasize it takes practice to get right and that the front brakes will acount for the majority of your stopping power.

It's too hard (especially for new riders) to apply rear brakes light enough to not lock up the rear and get in trouble. To jump on a soap box and shout out every new rider needs to use the rear brake is foolish unless you are going to explain how much traction the rear tire will not have when applying max brakes to the front.

Like I said we could go on and on about this, but we already have

Listen hear noob. The issue is noobs like you are being fed dont use your rear brake you might lock it, not learn to use it. Especially trackers who don't even ride street where using rear is essential.

I've never promoted use rear brakes only for maximum braking, but when applied right will apply it more than fronts alone.

level 3? It took practice for guys to get there.

No different than practicing using rear brake, from the get go.

Perhaps then, you should should focus on gaining confidence using it, instead of haranguing other's that provide commentary about it.


"Like I said we could go on and on about this, but we already have "

...and it will come again, as member come and go. Learn instead to ignore it then.
I imagine I could find a variety of topics that have been 'rehashed' that you would find relatively 'new'.

So you have it mastered then? I'd love to get some pointers from you and tmax as I'm sure y'all are much faster than me since I'm a "noob"

TMAX- you're riding one thing (scooter) talking about big boy toys like motorcycles, and have the track experience of my 5 year old son. Please just stfu with calling anyone "noobs".
