Gee...I bet a qualified instructor at a good riding school could fix those things easily....
fulopchoy99 and smokey11 like this.

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

I Ride: '09 ZX6R Green/Black
Stabbed at the front brake this morning on a fast right hander in reaction to a DPS officer pulling a dead deer from the middle of the road - talk about a terrible SR (survival reaction). The front end slide a bit then tried to pull a tank slapper.

I realized my mistake instantly and let off the brake and added a bit of throttle and thanked God I sent my damper to Kyle Racing and always set it before starting a ride. It was such a smooth recovery that the officer gave me thumbs up and wave despite my obvious speed violation.

Stabbing the front brake is a terrible reaction, but can remedied with an even quicker positive reaction.

Anyone can go fast in a straight line...
Better to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow.
