Correct stopping procedure

When applying the brakes, squeeze them smoothly, don't yank them. This gradually transfers weight to the front tire, increasing front tire traction and reducing the chance of locking the wheel, which eliminates the rider's control over the motorcycle. A hard stop using the front brake has the front tire howling on the verge of lock-up. The line between optimum braking and lock-up is a thin one, so make it a habit to go to an empty parking lot and practice hard braking.

Heres a video on correct braking....

lol, I like your intro, Hooligan. He didn't brake very hard it seemed. Probably panicked and got that "brown seat upgrade" mentioned above.

WOW! Decent control though in going between the cars instead of rear ending them! I did like that part.

Nice job of paying absolutely no attention to traffic stopped ahead... and good control with the rear locked up
