Quick Stop Technique

:^) much better statement, almost well enough to where I wouldn’t argue it unless you catch me on a day I was feeling ornery.
Again…clear statements when dealing with us beginners need more focus.

ahhh the ol KISS rule. I think thats what was being argued here, we newbs need it simple, and all the graphs and the percentages get confusing to someone who hasn’t gotten it quite to natural yet. clearly what Munch was saying was a simple explanation, while perhaps not the most 100% accurate is better than the explanation thats absolutely 100% accurate, but so confusing to the newbie that he won’t get even a little of the understanding out of it. which is why many trainers have to dumb it down a bit. the goal being to get as close as possible to the correct answer in such a way that the newb will perform the action as close to correct as possible, rather than explain with exactitude but in a way that the newb would do the complete wrong action while attempting to make sense of what is to him, still senseless.
i made the mistake once of telling someone I was teaching to drive stick that technically you CAN start from third. I said this mostly to assuage their fear that they’ll accidentally put it in third not first and blow up my jeep. this was a mistake however as the first chance they got they intentionally started in third, spun the tires and hopped the damn thing. people have the amazing ability to hear only the first half of what you say and go with it. so I suppose the point was that while what was being said was technically correct, it was perhaps not the most correct way to put it for the new crowd.September 11, 2008 at 3:25 am #11965AndrewParticipant
Finally got to do some practice tonight. We have been getting a lot of rain. I did figure out what my problem was with skidding the rear wheel. I was basically trying to stop too fast and grabbing a bunch of brake. At 15 I wasn’t skidding, or if I was I wasn’t noticing. At 20 I was noticing. I took the shift down out to make it easier and just practiced a nice steady squeeze using the full 20 ft I had marked out. Before I was stopping in 10. I got nice and consistent with it until I put the shift change back in which threw me off a bit. More practice should help with that.September 11, 2008 at 3:33 am #11755sarcParticipant
Had the same problem when i first got my bike and was doing stopping drills. i kept skidding the rear tire somewhere around half-way through my stop. However, I found that with a little bit of practice, I’ve gotten myself in the habit of easing up of the rear brake at the same time that I start to feel the weight shifting and am bearing down harder on the front break. Seems to have solved that problem, although who knows if that muscle memory will hold in an oh &*%# moment.
Just to clarify, I don’t completely let up off the back break, just ease up a bit of the pressure as the weight is shifting forward and the front break is starting to work at full capacity.
