Well thanks to whomever you are that designed the Silverwings breaking system, I gave them full test yesterday on a ride. Speed 45 / 50 mph, riding covered and scanning I spotted movement out of the corner of my eye. BIG and brown suddenly was right in front of me followed by another one close behind, hard on both brakes I heard a tire chirp, a quick move left and made it between both of them. I'm not sure of the pucker rating but all three of us must be a bit tighter. This adventure was on Goose Creek rd. headed for rt. 56.
