Modie Posted February 15, 2007 Share Posted February 15, 2007 1150 RTP to be exact. I ride an '05 (yes '05) 1150RTP. It's my work bike. Today during our monthly training day, I decided to see how quickly I could get my bike stopped at 45. Actually the test pattern is a 40 mph decel within, I think it's 80 feet, then do a few turns. Anyway I was trying to get stopped within that distance at 45 mph as opposed to 40. Now, I do not depend on anti-lock. I try to 7-8-9 brake and prefer not to get to anti-lock due to the extended braking distance. To my point, I was squeezing harder and fast harder than usual for the stated reasons. I kept getting it into anti-lock and as soon as I hit anti-lock, I could not increase my braking power. Again I don't regularly get into anti-lock but I thought the system went into a pulsating mode similar to the type in autos. It was as if the system sensed maximum braking pressure and would not allow any more pressure to be put into the brakes, no matter how much harder I squeezed. Could someone educated me please.
