Stopping Distance

I dont suppose anyone knows what the stopping distance for an R1 is at say 50MPH do they?
Here in the UK the highway code states that overall stopping distance is made up of thinking distance and braking distance and it is braking distance Im interested in.

How many feet would the R1 travel with brakes fully on before stopping at 50MPH?

My R1 has a device on the right handlebar which makes the clocks come up so theyre easier to read!
Its called the throttle!!

Depend on rider wieght / ablility

I would guess from 50 a r1 COULD stop in less then 100 feet.. thats just a educated guess though
