I've always been less than graceful on downhills. I'd prefer to just throw the bike down the hill and do the walk of shame. Apparently I need to get over my fear of front braking down hill and do less back braking, lol

The lack (well, less than the TracToR) of engine braking downhill scared the bejeesus outta me


Do you mean the lack of engine breaking on the wr250f? I have one and I thought it had heaps.... do 450's have that much more?

I've just never really done front brakes and down hills. I love my front brake all other times. Oh, I engine brake, no dramas I think with that. Ended up just switching it off the other day n just rolling down a hill
