DCT - Handbrake
« on: May 18, 2012, 09:13:03 PM »
How many of you have used the 'handbrake' on your DCT version?

I've used it twice, once on a hill, and once to show someone how it works. I didn't realise at first that it operates a separate caliper at the back. Still find it difficult to operate with one hand.

Not really used that handbrake many times ... only couple of times on some crooked parking space .....

I think every rider visiting Europe from here in the UK will be using their hand brake on the ferry crossing. I used to tie the front brake on with a bunji to stop the bike moving when we were on the boat. Now, no need to worry, just click on hand brake and she will be safe.  :002:
