I have pulled these quotes from there original location so that I don't take Ravens new bike thread WAAAAYYYY off topic and steal his thunder. I am left with a truck load of thoughts going around my head on this one. 1) why is it called trail Breaking if it is done on the front tire? I always thought of Trail breaking as feathering your Rear (Or Trailing) break into a corner to settle the rear end. 2) I definitely understand the idea of preloading your breaks on corner entry so that if you need to increase your breaking you already have the suspension compressed and donâ€™t cause the front to dive and all hell to break loose (Along with your front traction) BUT!!! And this is a big but (Almost as big as Vicâ€™s butt in his new Tiger Angel Leathers) In the Church of Code (Thatâ€™s Keith Code of Twist of the Wrist Fame) they state that you should keep a 60/40 rearward weight bias for best cornering and stability. So whatâ€™s the deal? 3) Allowing for number two, is this where we get to the Funky GP Rider extremes of Front break with a little throttle on to force the shocks to compress and thus shorten the wheelbase midcorner (Now that is some funky Sh!t) Now I state this all in the knowledge that we are talking advanced techniques (Donâ€™t try this at home kids) and that they should not be tried until you are familiar enough with your bike that you could have sex on it in the twisties (Provided you can find a willing and capable partner). Carâ€™n guys explain this as it soundsâ€¦ Wellâ€¦ FUNKY!
