why are you panicking instead of practicing good "emergency" braking ?

Apropos of nothing to do with street riding, Ben Spies on the Yamaha M1:

Quote:
The Yamaha is a great bike, but it likes a lot of corner speed. If it moves, if the wheels get out of line, it gets upset. For example, if the rear wheel comes off the ground when you’re braking, moves left or right and barely touches the ground, the bike will snap! So you can’t maintain the same front brake pressure

I ran an experiment to show to a beginner friend of mine the importance the effectiveness of the front and the impact of both vs just using the rear.

...about the same relevance as a sport bike on the track! (and IIRC, the OP's girlfriend does not ride a sportbike anyway)

Go try it on your sportbike on your surface of choice. report your data. I already know the outcome.
