      Hi there,

      Love this online course! Im at the braking module and my question is, do we only use the front brake going through a curve? When theyre talking about trail braking, I`m just wondering which brakes to use.
      Thank you
      Lee

        Lee Anne,

        Keep on going to keep learning more.

        Trail braking is either brake Front or rear). The front brake is more powerful, more controllable (your fingers have more dexterity than your entire foot in a boot), and doesn’t get enough attention from much of the motorcycle training world so we put a lot of emphasis on it but by definition, you can trail-off the front or rear brakes as you enter the corner.

        Practice being able to adjust the brake pressure at very small increments and you will see how much more p[recise you can be with the front.

        I hope this made sense.
