Is it ok to use brakes on corners? Sometimes I find I have no choice but to use them, I do so carefully, not too hard but I was told to use them before the corner, as Im new I cant judge every corner, or new roads Ive never been on. I also change gears on corners sometimes, but ride the clutch till im nearly out of the bend, just to get quicker accelleration. Is that a no no too.?
