"The most powerful part of your motorcycle is not the engine - it's the brakes. That's a fact. Consider this - A GSXR1000 can do a standing quarter mile in 10.8 seconds with a terminal speed of 138mph. Yet the brakes can do the same amount of work, but in reverse, in just 6.8 seconds..."

Compelling stuff indeed, and definitely worth reading if you ever wondered how performance brakes work, what mastercylinder ratios and brake caliper piston sizes mean, what piston travel and brake fade are etc.​
