Slow down a motorcycle safely is a complex matter in everyday traffic and even during emergency braking in a critical situation. Multiple levels of action constitute a difficult behavior patterns, the individual components must be learned and practiced gradually. With increasing routine all these actions take time together, and automate processes. Sounds complicated? The correct use of hand and foot brake is only one of several tasks that must cope with the driver. How well a successful braking is already influenced by his sitting position and body tension.
It is important to find the right blend of body tension and looseness. So knee to the tank, upper body upright and arms bent. Who in this tense and braced his weight with his elbows on the arm stretched by feel, not what makes the front wheel straight and can not react with the necessary sensitivity. Equally important is the correct view of leadership.
Because like the trees reflected so beautifully in the newly revamped tank when braking, it means that your chin up and look ahead. This supports the sense of balance and a feeling for the vehicle responses. When braking in emergency situations it is extremely important to resolve the view from the obstacle. Who is fixed in fright rigidity, it also usually rams. Those who look into the free space on the other hand, finds the way out.
Now it's pack up! Without ABS is tricky here. A blocked front wheel quickly leads to the fall, because it can not transmit cornering force. If no system protects against the driver must be self-employed so antiblockierend. The tire can be even more braking force to the road, the more weight loaded on it. Because of the dynamic wheel load distribution during braking, the bike shifted more and more forward.
