I slowed down enough around the turn without sliding out of control. (Im not going to slam on the front brake on a turn)
Holy , that was you in the video?

If you're gonna ride like a hooligan, at least accept responsibility for it.

Oh, I know what I was doing wasn't right. But lesson learned(again)
Just though I could post the video to show everyone what can happen when you don't expect it.

No matter what bike youre on, you should use both brakes all the time but use your front more so for stopping power. Rear brakes have stopping power but it's mostly to keep the back end straight. That's just how it works when you're stopping you're weight is all shifted towards the front

This depends on so many factors that I'm unsure how you can make such a blanket statement. It really depends on how high and how far back the center of mass is. If it's very low and very far back, you end up getting a much different effect than you do if it's relatively high and symmetrical between the wheels. Yes, there will always be some force wanting to loop the back up over the front. But that force is greatly diminished when the CoM is low and rearward...

Lol, You obviously know everything. You should ride a chopper some time and let me know how much stopping power the front has.

Regardless of CoM you have 400+lbs moving on a straight plane in one direction, when you slow that mass down the momentum of the mass is in the direction it was moving. In turn your forks compress and at this point your front brake is doing most of the stopping. It doesn't matter if youre on a Goldwing or a schwin 10 speed that's the physics of it. Even in a car your front brakes are doing the work. You canT change that.


And that's how I can make that blanket statement

Where did I say I know it all? I've rode a Big Dog, the front brakes were great, better at stopping than the rear

This can happen when you don't expect it. I wasn't expecting this suv to be stopped on the freeway...
I was lucky enough to walk away... then fall back down lol.

And that's how I can make that blanket statement
There is no torque acting on the bike if the center of mass is located directly between the two wheels, thus there is nothing causing the bike to compress the front forks or rear shock for that matter. Obviously no motorcycle has a center of mass this low, but a lower center of mass clearly results in less torque. Furthermore, the more rearward the center of mass, the greater the amount or torque about the front wheel in the orientation opposed to the one that would cause loading of the front forks (and thus the lower net torque about the front wheel). Because of the lower torque about the front wheel, the front end doesn't get loaded as much and the braking stays more neutral... Except that the front has a much smaller contact patch. Considering the fact that cruisers have both a lower and more rearward center of mass when compared to sport bikes, this leads them to have wildly different braking characteristics.
