Then consider using your rear brake tracker.
Keith Code knows more about riding than probably 90% of people on bikes. Making fun of him is showing ignorance.

And he advocates using both brakes.

What gets me is if you are racing, you should be looking at every little tiny percentage of advantage to reduce lap times.

Discounting anything is in a word, stupid.

Using a rear brake is like any other skill. It has to be learned and then practiced.

I think you may be confused.

"Trail braking is a motorcycle riding and driving technique where the brakes are used beyond the entrance to a turn and are gradually released up to the point of apex"

Isn't the street an "improved road surface"?
