Oh, forgive me. I thought you were asking which page of the PDF, which is page 6. The PDF is on page 4.

However, when running off the road, gravel and dirt: by all means NEVER use front brake. (Panic situation, when going off-road from being on road.

Just my opinion and experience.
That's not what I'm saying. I said before locking the wheels. As in both of them. It's just an illustration so that when you view the graph you understand that anything over .65 combined is worthless because that's when you've locked both wheels. So the fact that the rear is able to exert more stopping power prior to .2 means that during roughly a third of that total braking power of the bike, the rear can do marginally more work. At least for this bike, which given the year and make was probably very upright. The difference would be larger with a lower bike. I would agree that you should never need to use the rear brake under normal conditions (not that you shouldn't, but you should never need it) but I also recognize that the greatest stopping power comes from using both brakes.

Front brake can be used extensively off road as well for best braking, at least 50/50 frt/rear use. Just need finesse and to know under which circumstances not to touch it. Can even lightly drag it to gain traction in turns while rolling on the throttle. etc.

Wanna put your money where your mouth is? Let's do a track day together. I've never done one, either. In fact you've got the upper hand on me because you've been riding longer and have done dirt track days apparently. Bring your Diavel and I'll tow you on my Street Triple, or I'll shut the up. Deal?

The diavel would get crushed in anything but a straight line. Let me get my fz1 in shape and we'll have a go for a friendly hundsky? You game or what?

I can do Sunday that weekend but not Saturday. I'd reckon whoever posts the fastest lap wins, but I'm also assuming they don't post lap times.
