The lever on the right, it's the front brake. It works really well.

Exactly my thoughts... seemed like he was weaving a bit over the yellow line before that, as well..

If he was to have splatted into the side of the truck that handy-dandy gopro footage would have certainly help explain things.

Speeding, wheelies, crossing double yellows, and not braking, and he has the nerve to criticize the trucker? And he had plenty of room anyway - truck's bumper was over the yellows when he passed...

morons. Just like the video where the guy kicks the mirror off the car who pulls out in front of him and "cuts him off" because he's doing triple the speed limit and there's no way the car could have expected that, especially in a residential setting.

I'm not pointing fingers at either person in the vid, but lets be real for a sec.
This is mainly a sport bike forum. Lots of us ride SS and even just standards and nakeds that are capable of speed. So if you can honestly say that you have never opened up the throttle, pop the clutch, or cut a few people off, then by all means cast the first stone.

The difference is, if I'm haulin the mail and someone pulls out in front of me, I know that it was largely (if not entirely) my fault.

You should use your front brake regardless of what bike it is. The proper method is to use them both but you definitely need your front brake more than the rear. And most of your braking power comes from the front that's not dependent on the type of bike that's physics.

It depends on the bike. Some cruisers are set up for majority rear braking. Some have most of the weight at the rear so a skinny tire with no weight on it will just slide out.

What works on a sportbike won't work on everything

I was passing a truck before this happened, stupid yes. Like you have never went over the speed limit. Hard to see with the camera angle but the problem was the truck driver pulled out of the driveway following another vehicle. He did not look when he did this. When he did see me he stopped in the middle of my lane then started off again. It was around a curve so it was hard for each of us to see. I slowed down enough around the turn without sliding out of control. (Im not going to slam on the front brake on a turn)
