Big brakes and R1's......

My Big Brembo Brakes (say that 10 times) and my R1 have the same hazzards.

On the R1 I have so much more acceleration over cars that i often move too fast and THEY get in the way.....

Conversely, my brakes are so good on my car that I often outbrake most cars which makes cars behind me run up a little too close and then I'm in the way.....

haha thats funny u should mention that Timboy, a professor at new england tech has a Focus SVT and it is like number 1 or 2 in its class for breaking and he says that he isnt worries about the people stopping short infront of him cause he cant stop, he is worried cause the people behind him wont be able to stop without using him as a buffer lol.

I had the R1 and the Gixxer (Suzuki 1000). I used to Road Race Extreme Class bikes. Liter bikes and bigger. My buddy would whip my ass all over the track. He would ride my R1 and I would ride the Gixxer and I could hardly keep up with him. Mind you, he was a novice class rider and I was an expert class rider. The 1 is just more dicey in the corners and the power delivery was incredibly smooth once you cracked the throttle wide open on exit. It was like a bull rush of power that seemed endless. The gixxer made great power but it was all over the map with great power. The 1 delivery the power exactly where and when you needed it. I t is much more manageable I thought. I did'nt race it until my final two of seven years of racing. If I would have had the 1 when I first began, I might still be racing now. As I got older I lost my nerve to go into corners the way you need to. The way i did as a young man who had nothing to lose. These days I have much to lose, so the nerve had worn away.
