Launching a motorcycle end over end by locking the front brake is easier going 80mph, and seating yourself firmly won't help. 

Oh shut up! >:(  I don't have the time nor urge to correct all of your so-called facts about motorcycle dynamics. Lets just say I've been riding longer than you've been breathing air.... and doing "stoppings" in the rain on slicks  explain that with your facts

"Combining both brakes won't stop you faster"  Yeah, WRONG.  ::)

Only wrong if you can somehow keep the rear wheel fully seated on the ground under MAXIMUM braking force.  I don't mean "Touching but gliding," I mean "Firmly planted."  If what is called a "stoppie" is physically possible, then using only the front brake in the most efficient way possible provides 100% of the maximum stopping power.



You have this kind of braking force up front.  What can the rear wheel possibly add?  The above is too much braking; use less front braking force, just enough to make the rear wheel glide over the surface of the road.


I read this 3 or 4 times and then gave up on trying to discern your position. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? "Combining both brakes won't stop you faster"
“If one's actions are honest, one does not need the predated confidence of others, only their rational perception.”

  The motorcycle will not only effectively ignore your weight 

::) good grief dude, every ounce of rider weight is called "sprung mass (or sprung weight)" and, AND where ever that weight is on the motorcycle that will have a huge  effect  on the handling of said vehicle.

In other news, you can't bunny hop a motorcycle by pulling up with your hands and legs.

Funny but I could have sworn I saw Aaron yates bunny hop at Mid Ohio a few years ago... oh you also may want to look at some  World Trials vids.

Not particularly relevant, but kind of cool nonetheless:

As an addendum to this, and as a hardcore cyclist (I don't own a car, although can drive), BBC Radio 4 had a big discussion about cycling and risk on the road on  You and Yours today. Anyone interested should be able to listen again.

Somebody posted the link to that recently on either here or NB forum.  Pretty amazing.  The part where the dog walks out in front of him is nerve racking! Rapido!
