I went riding with a co-worker the other day and noticed that he didnt cover his front brake while riding. When asked why, he said that the school taught him to cover the rear brake while riding in a straight line, but cover the front and clutch while going through a corner so that one could slow down if needed. Needless to say, I was.. confused.
He assures me that this is what was taught so I thought I'd post to get some opinions from others and perhaps let BSC chime in if this isn't the case.
PRS beat it into my head to cover my front brake. Intuitively, it makes sense since emergency braking with a rear would result in the rear locking up and putting the rider in even more danger.
So BCSB, I ask you - is the BC safety council teaching dangerous riding habits by telling riders not to cover their front brake?
Edit: He also informed me that the course taught him to apply the rear brakes a half a second before the front brake to make the bikes weight level out.
Maybe it's been too long since I've been in a riding school, but WTF? I have never in my years of riding heard anything like this.
