Re: How to make your EVO (powered) brakes less grabby (was "Re: ABS:)

I have no data to support or to refute your assertion, but I must be an 
exception. Since I received performance training, I use two fingers to 
brake. Yet every time I have been surprised and had to grab and handful of 
brake, I use four fingers. I speculate that my "instinct" is to grab the 
brake lever with full force, while my consciously "decided action" in a 
non-emergency braking situation is to use two fingers.
