Did my first hard/panic brake today. I had the tail wagging on my little Ninja. My husband and I had our BlueAnt comm devices on and he was saying "too much back brake!!!". I was able to stop OK at the light but you could hear the squealing for miles I am sure. I held it together fine but was a little shook up. Also forgot to get back into 1st so I stalled it when the light changed. Luckily you don't have to be in Neutral to start the 250 so I was able to start it quickly and go. Hopefully, lessoned learned.
