Helllo again Speed racer:
Tried your link but cannot find any reference to "EN". In fact I cannot even get a manual to download. The link takes you to the page "Manuals & Documents, I then fill in the drop downs using "1190 adventure JP" (not JP-R). For some weird reason the actual bike is found in the "segment" drop down list whereas, the "bike" drop-down list shows nothing??!! - perhaps I'm missing something? Would appreciate your feedback if possible
Thanks mate
Cheers

Why you don't grab a handful of brake at full lean

Interesting video.. although if you have a look closely you can see his front wheel hit the dirt before putting him on his side.. So it doesnt look like he applied the front brake very hard at all..

But id like to see the same thing happen on the new bosche system, if it could pull the bike out of that situation I'd be very impressed.. :)

Watch the slow-mo. He lets off hard and the suspension loads the front tire, then he grabs the front brake while leaned over and suspension loaded on the front.
