    Hi
    Linked brakes were the norm on the 354/500/504/654 and on Guzzi 350/400 fours.i loved the system but it is down to personal choice
    Cheers Steve

    yeh steve have used the system on the blackbird and i think its great,a lot of guys say they never use the rear,but i learnt to ride on the old bikes with drum brakes and you used every bit of available braking, including both feet sometimes

    I think linked brakes are easy and safe to use only Tarts at MCN don't like them ! They make riding easy I only use the other brake if I need to stop suddenly.
