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).

Key Takeaway:
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.
