Well, here's the story.

Sportbikerchic, Tim and I decided to go on a little ride. Nothing too fast around here since I am WAY new to the area and I dont know how the roads are. Sportbikerchic has been around here for a while so she's having all sorts of fun. TIm's hanging in the back and I am behind Sportbikerchic. Well, this car slams on the brakes and I see SBC (Sportbikerchic) hit the brakes kinda hard. Well, since we are in a staggered formation, I hit my brakes and no prob. I stop. Well, I hear screaching brakes and I look to my side. Here comes TIM. Then, I noticed the front end dip down and it turns into a mini endo. But since he was skidding, he wasnt exactly straight. He comes down and I thought he caught it. So, it comes down and what appeared to be slow motion, it goes on it's side. And you hear a crack. There goes the brake lever flying across the road.

The worst thing about it is that he just put a new one on this morning!!

Whats the lesson here? Too much rear brake and not enough front brake. DOnt be scared of the front brake...IT WORKS!

True that.....Had the almost identical thing happen to me a week or two ago....was behind a car propper distance and all....however when they stopped short in the middle of rt1 for no reason....reaction time ate up the distance quick....tried not to grab the front break toooo hard...and remembered from "MSF" its ok if the rear locks up (I was straight up) so the rear locked I could feel the slide and I kept applying pressure to the front break...ended up bringing the rear tire off the ground (look im a squid now) and I stopped...then the rear came back down...I know it felt like 4 feet off the ground....but you and I know it was probly an inch well anyways....learned that day...more front break however more modulation when using it.....now Ive gone out to a commuter lot and praticed breaking........

Hey, that sounds familiar. Hey, that was me. hehehe.. Yea, I felt like a squid after that. My mind was racing and I was telling myself 'Dont let me hit SBC' Had I known I was going to endo it, I would have gripped down on the bike with my leg to keep me from sliding foward on the seat. I think if I had stayed straignt on the bike, I would have landed ok, and held it. Oh well.. Lesson learned for the day.. Need to find me a spot to practice panic stops, and do it better without locking up and endoing.
