  1. while I don’t think I use my front brake when turning I never remember
    being told not to. cheers for that advice!

  2. Upright straight line braking, the front brake is the most
    effective/powerful stopping aid, as soon as you start to lean or turn the
    bike you massively reduce the size of the contact patch of the front tyre
    thus reducing grip, the weight of the bike still wants to travel in a
    straight line & very soon the front wheel will “wash out” from underneath
    you!

  3. @puretroubleman and what if you need to actually break while IN the corner?
    As you have probably realized, the rear brake alone want give you enough
    stopping power on it’s own, so you MUST use the front as well as the rear
    while in a turn…The trick is to straighten the bike a little (from
    leaning) and apply as much pressure to the front as it won’t lock up (take
    into consideration road traction conditions, tires etc). Washing out the
    front tire comes MOSTLY from locking the front brake….

  4. @Helladius666 what you need to remember here is that we are teaching novice
    motorcycle riders that have no experience or feel for the controls of the
    bike, if you are a trackday monkey or a seasoned racer with many years of
    experience then you Might get away with “trailing” the brakes, however we
    would NEVER teach this kind of technique for road use as you need to be off
    the brakes before entering the corner, if you do need to use the brakes
    then a small amount of rear should suffice.

  5. @uselessmayhem thank you very much, please keep watching:-)

  10. Just ride slowly and more smoothly, that should solve the problem! unless
    you have a mechanical issue with your bike?
