    Browni and other Bike People, lets chat

    I was thinking about renting a bike for a weekend first before i run out and get one..

    talk about your bike experiences, where you learned to ride, did you ever drop, etc..

    um yeah if you brake hard on front and none on back the back end will slide out from under you. Sometimes giving it gas saves you, not braking. I prevented a serious slide out once by following what I read in Keith Code's Twist of the Wrist II and giving it gas and not changing my body position at all...it worked and looked like i was stunting a sharp curve in the city instead of avoiding t-boning a car cause I went into the turn too fast ( a problem I did have to work on).

    So true...nuff times I was about to break out but instead of breaking(especially in a turn) I'd give it gas to get right...its a lot harder to explain tho...kinda like explaining counter steering
