Thanks for cross-posting that. I just finished his book, was a really solid read. What a great guy!

I'm an inveterate trail braker. I just do it. It drove my riding instructor abso-fucking-lutely nuts until he realized that I just do it and if I could do it, good. He started to work with it more heavily (German driving instructor, so no racing allowed), and now, he is quite proficient and gets the point.

Once you learn to trail brake, you will see turns a whole new way. Decreasing radius turns no longer are scary, because so what? Just keep slowing gently. It works!
