      Isn’t that bad form at 0:22 I thought you’re supposed to point your chin and open your chest into the corner. But because of maybe poor body positioning, even though he is trying to lean to the left his torso is actually twisting to the right

      That's so you naturally aim your hips. It's one of those mind muscle to mechanics

      Keep the rear tyre up as much as possible, it saves wear to the rubber😉

      Of course he knows how to brake on two wheels, but I expect more from English native speaker. Especially a guy who calls himself author&journalist. He's actually used incorrectly expressions three times: breaking force, breaking power, breaking pressure. I think its funny, but come on, we have to stop using these. Its as if someone was talking about accelerating amplitude! You can actually explain how to break using proper expressions.@blue03r6

      At your service. Proper engineers only talk about BREAKING PERFORMANCE. Saying <<breaking power>> gives away unprofessional without basic knowledge in physics.

      When I use my front brake my rear goes left and right, it swings and slides but doesn't lift. I roll off the throttle and press the clutch, then press the front brake. Why does the back swing?

      For me it only does that if I lock the rear wheel with the rear brake. But you shouldnt hold the clutch in when u stop u should downshift and use engine braking.

      my bike did it too. it felt cool, calm and controlled though, and you can feel the rear wheel lift and land continuously.

      @blue03r6 My rear wheel might of lifted off the ground a little. I will film myself while I do it to find out. Thank you.😊

      If it does that when you are braking really hard on a race track then its normal because the rear tire is off the ground. If its doing that with normal braking all the time then you may have an issue with the front forks not compressing or some other mechanical issue. It might be time to have a mechanic look at it.

      Wait.. You mean motorbikes do actually have front brakes? According to all the GoPro vlog motorbikers here on youtube yelling at car drivers, I'm pretty sure they don't have front brake.

      ive always used the front brake. for the quick stop i apply approx 70-80% on the front and 20-30% on the rear.
      i front brake into corners but i can't teach this in words here. there are videos on how to do this on YT.
      BTW you need your front brake for a hill start and burnouts.
      Bake brake for tight cirles or U turns and skids.

      The people on here are stupid as fuck.

      Here you have people *trying* to learn, yet they are getting bombarded by "you should already know this" "you're stupid if you don't know this" etc.

      This is how we breed stupid people.

      You pretentious fucks should just shut the fuck up.

      A lot of moto riders make full stop without using front brake. Most of them are now 6 feet under.

      I don't know to use rear brake, all my previously owned had faulty rear bike and I never really cared to change them as I don't use them

      Haaa? Who is serious about biking and does not know how to use front break an what the advantages are... in hardly use the rear break. Only for stabilisation and especially on track for turning and speed correction in corners or to get the front wheel down again. At least here in Europe you have to know an practice using front break to get driving license. 👍

      When I first got my Ducati Monster 796, I didn’t realize how much power that front brake was. I was constantly lifting the rear slightly; it is unnerving when you try to apply rear brakes and it is a dead feeling lol.

      Surely you have to demonstrate control of the front brake when you take your bike test?

      I haven't cringed in a while, complete waste of time and brain cells. I was expecting a video of high speed braking on a track. This is just pathetic.

      Thank you so much for these great tips. Next time i drive a bike i will remember this and try to use the front brake for braking. THANK YOU. Oh and also you are so smart for pointing out that you dont want to squeeze the brake so hard that the rear end comes up. I Always though that it is normal when i brake to lift the rear tyre, but now i know that it is better to keep both wheels on the ground while braking, Who would have tought that. OMG you guys are the best.

      When he says some riders have never used the front break I think hes referring to harley riders, maybe not the sport bikers? Because theres no way you would survive a day in city riding without using the front break on a sports bike. Harleys are about 40% rear break, 60% front break. But still not using the front is going to get you killed.

      Yes it does. Anyone who has ever rode a racing bike will tell you that the front brake is almost everything. Especially on downhills the rear brake will just lock up.

      Dont you have to use both the brakes.
      If you only use the front brake you may trip if there is a bump on the road or a pothole.
