:evil: Damn search function still returning a 404 error, this has probabaly been asked before :roll: I seem to have acquired the habit of applying the front brake in turns. Let me explain .. I approach a turn ( slow speed into a side street ), front brake applied to slow to desired speed, then pressure on lever decreased but brake still applied ( 2 fingers), turn initiated.. then as throttle is opened ( using palm & little fingers, brake is released . Much like clutch/throttle control where one is released slowly at the same time the other is increased. No doubt I may have read this somewhere and have now subconciously been doing it. I have found it removes any jerkyness mid turn and makes the turn 'feel' smoother. My questions are: 1 - Am I correct in doing this? Good Habit or BAD? 2 - Is it asking for trouble? ( ie front tyre washout ) 3 - I RARELY ever touch the rear brake under normal riding .. is this STILL the 'norm' ?
