Having recently been taught "correct braking technique" after 30 years of riding one thing popped up to surprise me.

Using only two fingers on the brake can create a situation where the throttle is still open a bit so your braking against the engine. Not good for N00bs. Proper lever adjustment & a closing fist technique allows full braking control or full throttle control but not both.
Oh, here's the bus. I'm off.
