Just lower your bike and move your to the rear (giggity) and your rear brake should be more effective right?

I'll take that bet.

The rear wheel of the motorcycle will lift off the ground at a deceleration of 1.28g.
The motorcycle decelerates at a = 0.471g when braking with the front brake only...
Consequently, the motorcycle decelerates at amax = 0.37g on a roadway having a tire-roadfriction coefficient of 0.8 when only the rear brake is applied near or at lockup.
You're welcome

8 pages of discussion/debate on using brakes on a motorcycle... SMH. FYI - most of us ride aggressively sometimes. In this example, riding wild and a bit unpredictably, it's pointless to criticize the crossing truck driver. When we ride like that, close calls become our responsibility. Heck, there's enough of these problems that can authentically be blamed on the 4-wheelers when we ride conservatively! I can't point fingers at the rider, but he has no room to blame the trucker for this one. And btw, avoiding the accident was skillful. But I don't know if I would've posted this video if it were me.
