WHY TEACH FOUR FINGERED BRAKING?
Guest: David Weed, currently an MSF-certified RiderCoach and RiderCoach trainer and formerly the lead technical specialist for the Washington State Motorcycle Program.
Topic: Bret and David dive into the controversial topic of teaching and using four fingers on the brake, why it’s still being taught, and strategies to improve as a rider (hint: it involves questioning the status quo).
We need to learn from what the bike is telling us and be able to make our own choices. Each choice has it’s own advantages and consequences. To be a really good rider, a talented rider, we must make choices in the moment and know when something makes sense and when it doesn’t.
