*Note to mods - was unsure where to raise this, general, new riders or even politics. As question I have was general I posted it here - please move if more suited elsewhere. Was recently trawling the VicRoads site in relation to some other matters and stumbled across this. Motorcycle Skills Practice Guide (for new riders, working towards their licence etc, first published 2005 by Roads Corporation) I haven't read it in its entirety yet, but on a quick glance through noticed this: pge 88 Brake into a curve It is important that you are actually using the brakes as you go into the turn.<snip> As you approach the corner, slow down for it using both brakes. Continue to brake as you go into the corner, then ease off the brakes and gently accelerate as you leave the curve. Return to the corner and repeat. Check yourself Did you: - Apply both brakes while you were travelling straight? - Keep braking as you leaned the bike for the corner? - Ease off the brakes before accelerating gently out of the corner? After you’ve done this several times, try increasing your speed a little. This is contrary to what I was taught at new rider level (at both accredited schools and in mentoring), ie. was taught get braking out the way before tip in. If it's an allusion to trailing brakes through corners then that's a step up, more advanced technique (intermediate+) ... trailing rear brake through corners was touched on in Stay Upright's intermediate course, trailing front brake I'd have thought a step up from that (and subject to type of bike?)... but trailing both brakes? And practice "may increase your crash risk" (pge 30). Was curious: - Has anyone read this? - Thoughts?
