The State employee cut through an opening in the funeral procession as he was riding alongside in order to get to his next traffic control post. Harold broke his knee and foot and tore his rotator cuff in the accident. He later developed excruciating pain in his legs. His orthopedist suspected CRPS, which is a peripheral nerve disorder that usually occurs after a traumatic event. We retained a CRPS specialist who, after much testing, confirmed the diagnosis and placed him in a multi-disciplinary pain management program, which helped him tolerate the chronic, stubborn pain. The insurance defense doctor said Harold did not have CPRS and, essentially, that he was faking, and required neither treatment nor medication.

Forum Sponsor nick is one of our forum members on another forum I am a member of, he shared the following and I tought the members here might benefit from it. One, you will stand the bike up and ride it off the shoulder and into whatever is over there.
Or two, you will lay the bike down and slide off the shoulder of the road. Braking is done before, or after a corner. I want to tell you that there are measureable, explainable, repeatable, do-able reasons that make great riders great. And brake usage is at the very tippity-top of these reasons. It will save and grow our sport. To begin: Realize that great motorcycle riding is more subtle in its inputs than most of us imagine. I bet you are moving your hand too quickly with initial throttle and brakes.
Moving your right foot too quickly with initial rear brake. The difference between a lap record and a highside is minute, almost-immeasureable differences in throttle and lean angle.
The difference between hitting the Camaro in your lane and missing it by a foot is the little things a rider can do with speed control at lean angle. Brakes at lean angle. Brakes in a corner. Yes, a rider can brake in a corner. For sure. I promise. Happens all the time. I do it on every ride, track or street. Yes, a rider can stop in a corner. Complete stop, mid-corner…no drama.
Newbies and experts alike. There are some interesting processes to this sport, mostly revolving around racing. But as I thought about this thread, putting numbers on each thought made more sense because explaining these concepts relies on busting some myths and refining your inputs. Some things must be ingrained…like 1 below.
If you stab the brakes um As the front tire reaches its limit, it will squirm and warn you…if that limit is reached in a linear manner.
Do you have a new rider in your life? Get them thinking of never, ever, never grabbing the brakes. If the grip is good, the fork will collapse and the bike will stand up and run wide. If the grip is not-so-good, the front tire will lock and slide.
The italicized advice at the beginning was written by a rider who aggressively goes after the front brake lever.
His bike always stands up or lowsides. But what about the racers on TV who lose the front in the braking zone? Pay attention to when they lose grip. If the corner is tighter than expected, continue to bring your speed down. Roll off the throttle and hope you slow down? Or roll off the throttle and squeeze on a little brake? Do this: Ride in a circle in a parking lot at a given lean angle. Run a circle or two and then slowly sneak on more throttle at the same lean angle and watch what your radius does.
Now ride in the circle again, and roll off the throttle…at the same lean angle. You are learning Radius equals MPH. You are learning what throttle and off-throttle does to your radius through steering geometry changes and speed changes.
You are learning something on your own, rather than asking for advice on subjects that affect your health and life. You will also learn why I get so upset when new riders are told to push on the inside bar and pick up the throttle if they get in the corner too fast.
Exactly the opposite of what the best riders do. Let me rant for a moment: Almost every bit of riding advice works when the pace is low and the grip is high. Know that these techniques are not only understandable, but do-able by you. Yes you! Because our footpegs drag before our tires lose grip when things are warm and dry.
It might be only 3 points, but missing the bus bumper by a foot is still missing the bumper! Rainy and cold? Lower still, but still combine-able. You close the throttle and sneak on the brakes lightly, balancing lean angle points against brake points.
As you slow down, your radius continues to tighten. What can you do with the brakes when you take away lean angle? Squeeze more. Stay with it and you will stop your bike mid-corner completely upright. No drama. This advice works until you enter a corner truly beyond your mental, physical or mechanical limits. Yes, too fast. What component reduces speed? What component calms your brain? What component, when massaged skillfully, helps the bike turn? I like it, I like the peeps, I like the info, I love the bike.
Could we begin to change the information we pass along regarding brakes and lean angle? Could we control our sport by actually controlling our motorcycles? Get out there and master the brakes. Thanks, I feel better.
