Motorcycle braking in the wet

The video below shows how much grip there is available if you just apply your front brake smoothly and steadily as you slow – back wheel comes off the ground.

You gently apply both brakes initially, but you need to release the back brake as the weight transfers forward to avoid locking the rear wheel, whilst steadily increasing the pressure on the front brake lever.
