And to be honest, the rear brake on MY ZX6R does sweet fuck all when trying to stop. It's only good for keeping you stopped at the lights, or keeping the front end down a bit at the start of a race.
Wasn't 50 mph. I'll check my GPS track, but it was maybe half that. This was stop and go traffic.

So what did your radar have him at? After all I witness testimony is the most unreliable information available!
You are wrong, but don't that get in the way of your Self-righteousness sanctimoniousness, sententiousness, and holier-than-thou attitudes ! or most of the opinions to the contrary of your's here!
Relax Francis!
Or go join the whiner about stunters!

Thanks for playing. Did I mention I was right behind him? No radar, but I'll check my GPS track.

Rest-assured the following: The SPEED was so low (stop and go traffic) that it was patently obvious that he could have easily stopped if he had applied his FRONT brake.

Look at this Looser!

I think he was real hard on the front if the distance you gave are correct. and if he was not paying attention, then he did a great job recovering.
Will to bet neither of them are on the brakes at all....when it doubt throttle out and all that.

i can't find the videos of those bike gods power sliding (and sometimes drifting both tires before the drift starts) around turns for that one guy that was confused about them only using the rear brake, but

THANK YOU

To be fair, this has nothing to do with "Harley." I was making a joke, but I obviously underestimated how butthurt some folks get.

This is all about lack of training. This guy was in a panic braking situation. We can talk all day about inattention, but once that ship has sailed, the object is to stop as quickly as possible.

This guy was less than a second from smashing into a minivan which was EASILY avoidable. He was going so slowly that I had time to watch the near-disaster unfold and think about it. I could have gassed it, PASSED HIM , and still stopped before the Minivan. Or, at least that's what it felt like to me. That's how slow he was going.

After he nearly binned his 6R, he shook out his arms... clearly sore from his death grip and locked elbows.

If your point is that it is unlikely the rider would have died -- then I guess you are right. Front of bike very damaged. Rider injured. But, probably would not have KILLED him.

I was referring more to the moments many of us have had, where you see an accident happen (or nearly happen) right before your eyes. And, this is the "Perfect Line" forum, so I thought I'd share the experience and maybe learn.

(Caution: grammar nazi at work ) Sorry, but I keep seeing folks writing "looser" where "loser" is the word to use, and just couldn't help myself this time.

When was it decided to stop teeching spelling in skule?
