Good advice Jim. Everybody, whether they have ABS or not, should do this periodically just to keep sharp. As much riding as we do, it shouldn't be too difficult to carve out 15-20 minutes to rehone our emerg stop skills.jkwinchester said:If you haven't tried out your brakes yet ya ota do it the first chance ya get. A Wallyworld parking lot type place, preferably after hours... Work up to a full ABS activation. Give the brakes time to cool if necessary, more pratice makes less panic :wink: (stops).
