Here's a few more facts to counter uninformed opinion. you'll note the tested 60-0 stopping distance of the Honda Rebel is 115.9 feet which places it in the average to better than average bracket for all motorcycles tested. It's interesting to note that my old Ducati 1098S, with the most powerful brakes I have ever personally experienced, only beat the Rebel by 1 foot in this test. Not too shabby!

I am amazed that folks keep trying to "educate" Mee Lee. He has got to be a troll; nobody who actually rides can be that misinformed.

A troll that's back under a new identity, yes.

Still, with a passenger the rear brake brakes better than the front...
Why?

:yapyap1: :yapyap1: Because as has been repeatedly explained to you, you don't understand how to use the front brake. You also don't want to admit that you don't understand and apparently you have no interest in learning. Because of that, this thread is now closed.
