With all the gravel on my county roads right now, I am kind of glad the brakes are "forgiving". I nearly lost it in a curve tonight, and I may have had a finger on the front brake, not sure. I didn't see anything in the road, just cornering at a nice pace but not pushing hard when the front wheel let go. It did a violent wobble then thankfully got a bite and I was able to correct the bike without crashing. Scared the Alpinestars(pants) off me!
Point is, without ABS, its easy to lock that front wheel with racetrack quality brakes. I think the average rider is better off with less aggressive braking. IMHO.
