There's still a lot of stuff to add- Don't wrap it up yet.
Lots of knowledge to surface still.
For example: Yes, wet brakes can be "soft" but if you over compensate, you'll find out just how grabby wet brakes can be when you slip on wet tar.
So, you may want to include that--
Also, Ree said we should always be careful when stopping at red lights, don't put your foot down in a patch of oil or grease and dump your moped.
I wouldn't ever have thought of that unless I did it, which I probably would have at some point.
Don's post is right on. I've heard lots of stories about bikers stopped at red lights and getting 'punted' 50 or 60 feet by a car who just didn't stop-- when they slam on their brakes, it's like a billiard ball or pinball spring-- the biker gets launched.
There is a lot of stuff to address still... Anyone else have thoughts on this?
