About This Item

Myth -
A Skilled Rider Can Stop Better with Conventional Brakes than with Anti-Lock Brakes

Extensive testing done recently disproves this popular notion. Even on clean, dry, flat pavement, skilled, experienced riders (who did hundreds of panic stops for the testing on outrigger-equipped motorcycles) stopped in less distance with anti-lock brakes (ABS) than with conventional or linked braking systems. Though the tests didn't include samples on surfaces with slick, dirty or wet spots, ABS certainly would have performed even better under those conditions while eliminating much of the risk of crashing.
The other cool thing about ABS on a motorcycle is that allows you to safely practice panic stops without risking a crash caused by lock-up.

Know your bike and how to use it: Practice! Develop your riding techniques before going into heavy traffic. Know how to handle your bike in conditions such as wet or sandy roads, high winds, and uneven surfaces.

What a great mission!! I'm a Harley rider myself. Next month I'm going down to Daytona for Bike Week. I will place the bug somewhere down there. Seems like a good time and place to hide a bug meant to promote motorcycle safety: Bike Week 2011!!!

I don't like being "it", so I'll find another cache to put it in real soon.
