Understanding Quote

So I read a quote by Valentino that goes along the lines of this...

"A motorcyclist at the beginning struggles to understand that you shouldn't brake before a turn and then go in. You need to brake once your "in" the turn. You've got to come in on a full throttle and then slam hard on the brake, going into the turn at a high speed. That's the only way you can do it properly."
Valentino Rossi

I would love to better understand what Rossi is saying here. Braking inside a turn?

I think he mean that you should not stop breaking before turning so there is no time when the bike is running "free" (without breaking or accelerating).
For him it is a loose of time.... For us it his our wait to stay on our wheels
