Trail braking will save your . When you crash it not because of trail braking. As long as you make sure your trailing the lever off the more you add lean angle it won't crash you. On another note, If you jump off the brakes with lean angle. You unload the front tire to fast and you will crash. Max braking has to be done straight up. 80% of your braking should be done before you begin trail braking into the turn. If you are adding brake pressure at the same time as adding lean angle. You will crash. The twist to all of this is not trail braking. You have no control of corner entry speed once you release that lever. Also with the brake on you have a bigger contact patch. Extra front traction as you turn in.

I could tell you about 20 other benefits to trail braking but then I wouldn't need to have a class. LOL!!!!

You can tell someone to trail brake but if you don't tell them how to do it. How can you expect them to do it correctly?
