on a heavy 650 Bergman, is it best to put one foot down when coming to a stop or two feet, when it comes to a stop I sometimes find it hard to balance.
I rarely ever have to actually put a foot down - all about timing and distance judging but sometimes at blind stopsigns you just have to.I've gotten the 400 and working on the 650 to balance for very short periods of time at stop signs without putting my feet down.
Yup nothing worse than being on a slanted slope - front wheel turned and having to come to a jarring stop. Recipe for a tip over.I've had to stop too many times after I've initiated my turn. Not a problem on the 400. No room for error on the 650.
I prefer no feet down... I've gotten the 400 and working on the 650 to balance for very short periods of time at stop signs without putting my feet down. I use to do it on my bicycle for entire stop lights without moving a MM. MCs are a lot tougher, but I'm gettin' there.
But when I eventually have to put my feet down, its both.
