This is my first post, and I wanted to ask the dirt bikers out there (or motorcycle riders in general) if they switch their brake lines so that the front brake is on the right and the rear on the left.
Tell us if you do or don't, and tell us why.
One of the main reasons why I think it's a good idea is so that the rider doesn't get confused in a panic situation and grab the wrong levers by instinct. It's hard to get a 25 pound bike confused with a +200 pound motorcycle, but I can see it happening under the "pucker factor of 10" scenarios. Even sometimes when bump-starting my dirtbike down a hill, I find my feet searching for the pedals on a bike. Strange!
So, do you switch em up, or leave them normal?
