While I love the looks of a sleek bike with a spool hub, I have a front brake.
But that's just because how I like to ride, as well as because where I ride. Riding in traffic in the city and on bad twisty roads away from the city traffic, the front brake has saved me enough times for me not to consider going without it.

The times I've needed it I've had it...
Kinda like toilet paper you can get away with it but dear lord you know if you needed it you'd be a mess with out it.

Now for all intensive purposes I try to use solely back brakes for practice a lot mainly for times I do ride the unruly ones, but again I've used both brakes
and couldn't stop anyway... collar bones, ribs, vertebra, fingers.... meh who needs em all have been broken.. handful are missing..

I'm neutral on it but I think if you're going to do no front brake: commit and do a spool hub and super narrow front end. Foot clutch + hand shift for the final bonus.

Everyone's opinion is pretty stupid, including mine. Suicide clutch and no front brake works for me.

Do whatever. I use the shit out of front brakes, a nice clean front end looks a hell of a lot better.

I ride with a front brake because I am in Las Vegas, and there are way too many dumbfucks on the road I need to avoid. Never ridden a bike with a suicide CLUTCH (not suicide shift, that is one of my pet peeves.) But, since I haven't ridden one, I am not going to chime in on that issue.

My first three chops had no front brake and I survived, my Ultra did have them and it saved my butt a few times. The Pan I am building now has a narrow glide with a front disk and I am quite pleased with it.

To each their own, what is that old expression, "There are old bikers, there are daring bikers, but there are very few daring, old bikers"

YMMV, -H

like said Before,...It's your bike, do what ya like,....
me, I have had Suicide Clutch & hand shift and found no problems,
but I personally like good Brakes,...after all, I'm an Endangered Species !!!
I ride in traffic a lot and at speed and don't think Looking Cool is worth my life or others that I ride with,
after all,...I'd be gutted if my not having a brake made me ride into buddies on a run who had slowed or stopped for a reason I didn't know about & I couldn't stop in time which has happened to a buddy of mine.

If I were to run a hand shift I would go tank shift and rocker clutch..first harley I rode around on had a suicide clutch and the ass scratcher jockey shift,I don't give a tin shit what anyone else does,tho a lot of guys just like to impress upon people who don't know any better that they are some hard core motherfuckers.

There are actually hardcore dudes that can bang gears faster with a hand shift.but they are mostly old cats getting too old now...front brakes ...rode around on the old back drum for years and could barley stop the fucken things pushin them when broke down or the cops made me walkit outta town cause it was too loud,but i dug it at the time.

Well why not add apehangers to the argument? Lotsa posers rocking those.

farmall
06-15-2017, 8:59 AM
If you ditch the front brake run an effective rear brake and practice maximum braking so you know how fast you can haul it down.

BTW apehangers are actually fine for countersteering (especially vs pullbacks and buckhorns). I taught MSF courses for years running apes.

If you run apes, make a POSITIVE anti-rotation stop. My FXR has Biltwell stainless risers tack welded to the inside bottom of the bar. In a crash the tacks will shear. If the bar bends it's easy to twist off a single tack. On other bikes I run Front Street Cycle stainless bars with welded risers. Comfortable for my trashed back.

The BBQBIKER runs a drum front and a suicide clutch on his shitbox shovel. Can't imagine not having a front brake...all the diff situations I ride into it's indispensable.

I dig the clean look of a spool but what if you are a sitting at a stop sign, uphill, doing a 45° turn in the rain with fogged up glasses at night with an 18 wheeler behind you? I'd like a front brake at that point. Or maybe I suck as a rider?

The rear mech drum hauls er' down just fine it's most of my braking power

Run 16" apes as well, quite the comfortable setup

flsjim

Fuck ya bro 16"s are better than hittin the cats ass bbq,

right on tattoo i can still get things done when the shit hits the fan..

And you dusty are certainly speaking wise.getting old aint for pussys but dying aint for me just yet...

You can't have both there Q..... It's not a suicide clutch if you have a front brake.... That's why they call them Suicide bikes...... You just have a foot clutch hand shift bike..... At least that's what I've heard and called them all my life....

They are a lot of fun to ride either way...

I was led to believe it came known as a Suicide Clutch from those who replaced the Rocker clutch with a straight pull clutch pedal that works like the one in ya Truck,....
if ya forgot it wasn't a rocker clutch any more or ya just bought the bike like that & were only used to a rocker pedal you ran the risk of pulling up to a junction and instead of the rocker keeping the clutch engaged when in gear, when you took ya foot off of it and flew into the cross traffic.............. either way I'd want a front brake

While I am at it, Should i swap my points for a Dyna ignition? Which is best?

Poor tattoo the troll is butt hurt still, He gets no love,. Normally I just ignore him like Jockey Journal and everyone else. But since he called me out, I guess I am busted. My ride is only one wheel, and I just pretend. (But I did stay at a holiday inn last night). While I am typing this since my real job is a keyboard commando and while accessing NSA and DOD systems in a full 360 CaC role Im currently lining up a chalk 3 BUFF ArcLight mission on his Trailer park. We are calling it LineBacker 111. (100% accuracy)

Biggest treasure trove of parts and bikes in the US. I got a lot of it. It would take 20 of your trailers to contain just my Triumph stuff. Sad sad sad poor troll. Just jealous.
This is me & Uncle Cliff at the Old timers banquet. Next to us is Eldon Wright who was the US western Triumph factory rep. Sadly they are now gone, but I try to keep the legacy going. Maybe if you are really nice and beg Ill send you an autographed souvenir.

Eldon got a special award that night for his contributions to motorcycling and in the hall of fame. Sadly,, nobody gives tattoo the troll any awards. Thats why he is butthurt. The Rodney Dangerfield of Butthurt trolls. No respect. Jockey Journal dont love the troll, nobody else does either. Poor troll.

Should i swap my points for a Dyna ignition? Which is best?

Redundant ignitions for continuous failover protection is best. Machine a new advance base with a longer shaft and custom bisexual points cam/Dyna trigger. Keep the Dyna inboard and the points plate outboard mounted in a cylindrical multi-piece cover with an outboard carrier bearing to control whip. Run dual coils and dual plugs to use both ignitions at once.

If a cone motor machine a dual mag cover with the above mods and have four ignitions available.

If that's not enough, have you flywheels machined to trigger a pickup and mod cases to fit.

Spark plug wires can flex and deteriorate. Run solid copper rods as bus bars instead. Mount using Adel clamps.

Run those bus bars to a custom rotary switch like those used to select amps on tapped style transformer arc welders but for higher voltage so you can switch ignitions on the fly.

Add a sidecar with a truck battery and 0-guage welding cable power cables. You never know when an alternator or generator will shit the bed.

I dont know why I even bothered to respond to tattoo... I mean how can anyone compete with THAT legacy??? The guy has the record of being kicked off Jockey Journal not once but twice. People felt sorry for the old LOP and let him back on, being that he is vastly superior to everyone he made sure the Moderators knew it and was kicked off a second time. How can anyone compete with that????

I have heard around the campfire that Tattoo has been BLOCKED here on 33 by more people than any other lister. Maybe theres somebody worse,, but at this Point No-Class Dusty is more popular than Tattoo. Which speaks volumes...

I feel sorry for the geezer, but its hard not to just compare him to a faded old Tramp stamp tattoo. Something that at one time was cool when it first came out,, now is just considered a joke.. When I see Tattoos name I just automatically think of wrinkled old ladies like these,, droopy saggy skin that nobody wants to see. Even if you dress up Tattoo in the proverbial Skank sparkly jeans its still just unpleasant...

I really just use the front when stopped and sometimes when I have to brake hard. Even with a fresh drum and new shoes the stopping power is minimal. I use engine braking and the rear 90% of the time...but always the front when stopped on a hill or any inclines.

I'll start holding on hills with the clutch and see what happens... maybe I'll get proficient enough to run a spool eventually?

The only legacy I can see you keeping going is the worlds fattest jowls....Jesus Christ you have no neck do you eat sticks of butter for breakfast what the fuck. I bet when you try to tie your shoes you black out and collapse into a puddle of your own piss. Luckily the inner tube of cellulite wrapped around your neck prevents any serious damage to what little brain mass you may possess.

Did you score a treadmill in that pile of Triumph crap maybe something you might want to think about.

Let's take a look at this hideous photo that against all judgment you posted on the inter-web

http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm39/bbqbiker69/ABFB4EE7-55DC-48ED-8B2B-69672F8097F0_zpswzfv1ufc.jpg (http://s292.photobucket.com/user/bbqbiker69/media/ABFB4EE7-55DC-48ED-8B2B-69672F8097F0_zpswzfv1ufc.jpg.html)

Do you sauté your pork rinds in lard or do you just eat them straight out of the bag?
You really don't ride a motorcycle do you??? you've got to be fucking kidding with those fucking gigantic jowls how can you even look to your left or right you must have to turn the entire motorcycle to the left or right in order to see anything I just don't understand the mechanics of it.

What fucking custom spring rate did Progressive suspension have to make to hold up your fat fucking ass my God the motorcycle must shed tears the moment you throw one telephone pole size leg over it while you're gasping for air. Dude you really need to get a mirror I mean what the fuck you let yourself go and buttermilk is not an energy drink FYI

I don't know if you get it or not but when you cut yourself shaving and gravy came pouring out that's a sign that you may want to do something about the weight. Fuck can we get a body shot of you I can only imagine what the rest of it looks like, I'm imagining the Michelin man saturated in burger greese and Cheeto dust. God what a mess..have you even seen your dick since well, you know you let things get this way I bet the Hubble telescope could find it it looks something like a raisin on a beanbag, not that you would ever need it for anything anyway what woman would touch such a hideous foul Jabba the Hutt looking thing my God but hey you got some old Triumph junk so you got that going for you I guess

Tattoo post's a lot of good solid information on here he is to old bike knowledge what you are to old country buffet. Tattoo knows it all you eat it all. Tattoo has a worktable you have a steam table. Tattoo leaves burnout marks on the asphalt with his bikes you have fake char marks on the Salisbury Steak you jam into your fat fucking jowls.

God I could go on forever but you know..... you get it by now maybe.

Go break another fucking scale and try not to be such an Internet douche.

Well If i still had them I would will them to you and you could BBQ them in flaming grease piles of smoke and flame,(my jowls and tri-tips), But that pix was about 5 years ago. Lost most of it since then. Getting run over by a drunk girl texting from a Drinking team with a softball problem had some adverse health issues for me. My girls bike sporty was nearly folded in half,, and since you asked.. Yep,, all that fat cushioned my crash.
I was at 45mph minding my own business, when BLAMMO! Thought i was back overseas and got blown up.

Fatman bounces good. The cops and witnesses say she was doing 75-80 mph and never touched the brakes. When I went thru her windshield the impact dislodged the back window in her Audi. (S4). I then did the most convincing version of the Agony of defeat wide world of sports rag doll impression anyone has ever seen. (Some pretty cool people stepped up as witnesses and wanted to kill the drunk bitch)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKEDD1i4oGk

I would guess though that Evel Knievel's wreck at Ceasers palace might have me beat though. But,, they used me as a teaching case at the trauma unit. (For the record Ducati parts in my backpack probably saved my spine/life) Still got the alloy radiator that acted as a chicken plate but it wont fit my 998 Superbike no more.........

So,, I gots something called TBI, and some other whiney ass excuses. But when I act like an Internet douche I actually have a documented reason. The VA Medical experts say so. Got it right here in black and white thanks to some crazy ass doctors that I refuse to listen to.
Used to say I would forget peoples names and lose my car keys, but now its way worse along with some serious hostility. Ill use it in court when I pop my cork. But at least I got an excuse.... whats your malfunction? Still dont change Tramp stamp Tattoos sad state.

Speaking of my ass and Spring rates,, Why dont you and your twink boyfriend tramp stamp tattoo offer up your expert opinions on my rear shock springs here on my chick bike? Will this buff out?? Im an idiot you know and we need internet experts like you to keep us on the right track.

As well, Well pucker up both of you and plant your lips square right here. Take a deep breath while you are at it. Thats my ass,,and you should kiss it, not that I look forward to that sort of thing but it was pointed out to me at therapy classes at the VA called "Mindfulness" that one way to channel anger is redirect it, so I feel better already! See,, they keep asking about am I a danger to myself or others and this is much better. I guess those Drs at the VA might actually know a thing or 2 when they dont lose my records, or try to prescribe zombie drugs. BTW, I was just released again from another stay and still got pieces of german car stuck in the skin. Got all the gravel and asphalt out. It showed up on the CT scans.

Right now, Show class-No Class Dusty is looking pretty good compared to you clowns!

Well skipping the bulllshit. Back to OPs question:

I don't run front brakes because I like the look and I only used them when stopped on a hill or incline anyways. Actually had a couple almost falls(at low speeds because I'm stupid) when I used my front brakes. Just grabbed too hard and bike went top heavy. Didnt take long to adjust to being stopped on an incline with one foot on the brake(most of the time my right, well all of the time).

But I have nothing against front brakes or any type of clutch/shift setup you want to run. Different strokes for different folks.

My apolgies to the rest of the forum for the bullshit distraction, hope the rest of you can return your normal programming. As to Trampstamp tattoo,, He has been poking the hornets nest for a long time and I am not the only one who gets tired of his BS. For the record I just ignore him (until today). Im sorry any of that got aired for anyone else to see.

I dont think, nor do I want a get out of jail free card. Yep, I got issues, none of which i was looking to broadcast, (but I did anyway) and compared to some of the guys I hang out with at my VA appts I am just a POG. Most of them are way worse off than me. My BS is 10% service connected yes, and I dont want or expect any special treatment. My other issues are all on me and my choice to ride on the road on 2 wheels. I rolled the dice for decades and it bit me on the ass.

I have some serious shit hanging over my head and as the Docs say.. "No Filter" Not making excuses,, its just what it is. I like to spend time on forums learning new stuff. (Unfortunately retention is not so good anymore) But its part of therapy to work on learning and working thru problems and tech materials. (Its called Neuroplasticity in case anyone is interested. The brain can rewire around damage and partially repair itself) Also,, for many years a lot of people have helped my dumb ass out too many times to count so If I can pass on something I know, Its rewarding.

I will make the point though. Be careful who you make fun of or screw with. Many of the guys in my PTSD/TBI therapy group have visible scars are wounds. It sounds messed up but others say those have an easier time & the lucky ones.. If someone can look at you and see your legs gone or scars its one thing, but theres a lot of messed up units out there who dont show the damage. I can spot it a mile away. Animals alert on people like me and people who have these issues. I dont go out much anymore but I can spot a guy in the grocery store or tensing up in a crowd. 99% of people dont see it or know how to see it. Cut people some slack. Many cant sleep or only in short bursts. Or so zonked out on the crap the VA pushes.

Psychotropic meds can have some spectacularly bad effects after working for a while or even immediately because everyone's physiology is different. After every anti-insomnia med I took (can't sleep because of back/neck damage and pain meds often interfere with sleep cycles) failed or backfired I went with cannabis every night before bed. It works for many thousands of people. Never use booze which does nothing for REM sleep and has a veteran kill rate literally greater than wars. A cold beer now and then is fine during the day but never drink to "sleep" because passing out with no REM sleep won't help.

What folks with TBI don't usually mention, but know, is damage from concussion (no matter how you were concussed, wear a fucking full coverage helmet!) can worsen over time.

Sleep deprivation is spectacularly destructive to memory retention but you can systematically use things like note-taking (and posting the notes where you will see them) can make even well-rested people much more efficient by supplying external memory triggers. As you get older you need to make a deliberate effort burn in effective habits to function well. It's like any other training and practice.

More people should talk about it because with or without injury our faculties will change and measurably deteriorate over time. Fuck the old custom of shutting up and trying to do it all yourself. That was never not stupid.

The only legacy I can see you keeping going is the worlds fattest jowls....Jesus Christ you have no neck do you eat sticks of butter for breakfast what the fuck. I bet when you try to tie your shoes you black out and collapse into a puddle of your own piss. Luckily the inner tube of cellulite wrapped around your neck prevents any serious damage to what little brain mass you may possess.

Did you score a treadmill in that pile of Triumph crap maybe something you might want to think about.

Let's take a look at this hideous photo that against all judgment you posted on the inter-web

Do you sauté your pork rinds in lard or do you just eat them straight out of the bag?
You really don't ride a motorcycle do you??? you've got to be fucking kidding with those fucking gigantic jowls how can you even look to your left or right you must have to turn the entire motorcycle to the left or right in order to see anything I just don't understand the mechanics of it.

What fucking custom spring rate did Progressive suspension have to make to hold up your fat fucking ass my God the motorcycle must shed tears the moment you throw one telephone pole size leg over it while you're gasping for air. Dude you really need to get a mirror I mean what the fuck you let yourself go and buttermilk is not an energy drink FYI

I don't know if you get it or not but when you cut yourself shaving and gravy came pouring out that's a sign that you may want to do something about the weight. Fuck can we get a body shot of you I can only imagine what the rest of it looks like, I'm imagining the Michelin man saturated in burger greese and Cheeto dust. God what a mess..have you even seen your dick since well, you know you let things get this way I bet the Hubble telescope could find it it looks something like a raisin on a beanbag, not that you would ever need it for anything anyway what woman would touch such a hideous foul Jabba the Hutt looking thing my God but hey you got some old Triumph junk so you got that going for you I guess

Tattoo post's a lot of good solid information on here he is to old bike knowledge what you are to old country buffet. Tattoo knows it all you eat it all. Tattoo has a worktable you have a steam table. Tattoo leaves burnout marks on the asphalt with his bikes you have fake char marks on the Salisbury Steak you jam into your fat fucking jowls.

God I could go on forever but you know..... you get it by now maybe.

Go break another fucking scale and try not to be such an Internet douche.

I dig the clean look of a spool but what if you are a sitting at a stop sign, uphill, doing a 45° turn in the rain with fogged up glasses at night with an 18 wheeler behind you? I'd like a front brake at that point. Or maybe I suck as a rider?




Hold it BETWEEN YOUR KNEES.

So I posted in another thread and noticed that some people are really opinionated on this subject I know where I stand on the subject but was wondering what everybody has to say whether it's hipster or not or poser or your not hardcore with out a front brake.... just dropping a line to see what guys think also your opinions on suicide shift lol hate it/love it anyways FIGHT!!!!!!!!! Lmao

I am a fan of do whatever floats your boat. But I will say I have been riding for the last couple days without a front break and you defiantly need to change your ridding style. Waiting for parts to put the front brake back in action. I ride too aggressive and in too heavy of traffic for no front brake. It is hard to keep traffic from cutting you off and being able to brake fast enough with just my rear. That is at my humble opinion.

Rear brake only increases the slide in an urgent stop, maybe doubles braking distance. A stopping body in motion tends to want to roll forward. Front brake pushes down. Rear brake lifts up. So I guess it depends on your riding style. No front brake, give yourself extra stop. If you don't, you will after the first time you didn't. :)

I think a front disk is almost as streamlined looking as the little naked hub and even a light one stops the bike just fine. Sure, what matters in the end is if you made it home. So what ever you do, just make it home.
