Newbs Practice your hard braking. - April 26, 2011, 12:29 AM

This is a perfect example of a newb mistake. This guy had plenty of time to hard brake and stop. He freaked out and dumped it. Here's something to think about. You will stop faster on your tires while braking than sliding.

case and point.

You want to practice controlled hard braking with out locking your brakes up this is only achieved threw practice and experience. Dont freak out and panic. Panic = Death.

Uh, that guy was totally unaware of what was going on in front of him. Rule number one, watch where you're going. A stopped car, a dude out in the street in dayglow garb, and a giant orange truck all over the place are good clues to slow down.

Obviously he had to lay it down to save himself. Can you imagine how bad it would have been if he had touched that front brake? It would have thrown him into the truck and killed him. He saved his life by laying her down.

Good post. That's a great example of why we always need to be observant and ready to brake hard.

I never understood instinctively dumping the bike.

The wide angle makes the center of the vid look much farther away than it is...

I can't tell if you are serious? You are being sacrastic... right?
This was an avoidable accident.

Attn newbs: you should never "lay it down" to save yourself. Maybe a few rare occasions, but for the most part you should remain calm and always keep working to save it. Your bike, tires, and brakes are marvelous feats of engineering and can perform to limits most of us will never experience. Stay alert at all times, look for potential dangers, and find escape routes.

Realityis that no one can be 100% on attention 100% of the time they are on the bike. Accidents like this happen, and not always because the rider sucks at braiking. we all get distracted from time to time.

Braking lessons wouldn't hurt though. Especially since cars can often stop so much faster than bikes.
