so i've got this monster 1000. prior to that i had this little h*nda cb360t. i've always downshifted when coming to a stop on my honda. well, i've learned not to do that on my monster. i grabbed a handful of brake and started downshifting after having a car come to a fairly sudden stop in front of me the other day; as i'm slowing down and dropping into first, the rear wheel decides to hop out to the left a good bit. scared the s41+ outta me. mental note: no sudden downshifting.
