IENATSCH TUESDAY: STOP, Midcorner or Anywhere

Braking skills that can save your bacon.

In "The Brake Light Initiative," I challenged riders to be able to sneak on the brakes during any part of their ride. If a rider can go to the brakes at any moment, confidence and safety soar. In this video, Dwayne Stroman and I discuss and display a life-saving riding skill: The ability to stop our bikes mid-corner from real-world speeds.

If you like this type of video, let us know. It follows on The Pace 2.0, my book and everything we teach at the Yamaha Champions Riding School. It's about trail-braking, brake-assisted steering, radius equals mph, spring and tire loading...it's about riding into a corner and needing to stop right now."
