Going into a turn, Arredondo realized he was starting to lose control and made an amateur mistake: He tapped on the brakes. A more experienced rider would have known to push the bike into the turn

Just read the whole article! Definitely a good read! Really focuses and gets you to realize the safety and precautionary steps you need to take before you get one of these monsters. The part where the 19 year old said

Good read though
