Is it better to brake mostly with the rear over the front?
I took that class 15 years ago, on a standard bike. But then I had 2 automatics since then.
A Yamaha Majesty and a Vespa GTV. So there were no foot brakes.
This is the first time I have ridden a standard bike since 2003 and I am having a blast..
Up until today I always used the front and when sudden stopping, not happy with it.
Felt myself lunge forward. Today I just used my back brake and usually when I am cruising to
a stop, and on occasion use both. Just to see the result.
And the harder you brake, the higher that percentage becomes until it reaches 100% (see: "stoppie").Front brakes have about 70% of the breaking power on a motorcycle.
