That was the impression I got. I'll need to adjust my riding style significantly. I am a compression-braking whore. My first real bike was an airhead BMW. I rarely used the brakes. I'd just kick her down a cog and things would slow down. The brakes weren't really that good anyway. The compression braking was superb.
