After loading the fork springs and front tire, stay focused on your right-hand fingers and front tire; that's what counts. Don't lock your elbows, but be ready to load your arms and hands. Keep squeezing until you hear the tire start to yowl, signaling that it's near the point of lockup. Locking the (warm) front tire of a sportbike will cause the rear tire to leave the ground; lock-up on a less-sporty bike will skid the front. Don't be afraid of either situation because you must always add pressure in a linear manner! And whaddyaknow? The front tire locks in a linear manner, giving plenty of warning to be easily fixed with less brake pressure. Anytime you grab, stab, or hammer, at the brakes you will have trouble and eventually pain.
