I'm pretty sure it was to make sure it returns to the full up position.steeltoe said:Nicky Hayden uses his back brake to the point his team strapped a piece of inner tube to the lever so he'd cut it out. Wish I still had the pic.

Ummmm. Trail braking isn't using the rear brake. It's braking late into the corner beyond the point where most people let off the brakes and go into max lean.bumblebee said:I trail brake all the time...I guess it's just however you learned...
Ya know, I'm gonna leave that statement alone! :lol :2eeksmokenjoe said:I try to pump my rear every month so it will be there if I ever need it.

How was Barber, I was so bummed about not going? I will be at BFR either spectating or racing, not sure yet, are you guys coming up here for the event?
Glad to hear you guys had fun at Barber, what an awesome track!silent_R1 said:yeah, i know about haveing to leave it alone...i'll give him shit about it though when he gets home in the morning.
Barber was pretty good. Overall, my best finish was a 10th, my worst was a 22nd (?) of course, that was the race I crashed on so, I was pleased I at least got that. Joe got a 4th and the rest was a smattering of places. It was our last hurrah for the season (taking the next 3 months off except for the occasional motomania day in preparation for VIR in November. We have a 2 day event there) Unfortuantely, we will probably not make it out for the next event although we plan to be at bhf as soon as we can get up there next year. We really really like that track.
