Re: Engine braking on the streets?
I Like engine braking i can be a bit scary at first but if you can control your throttle application, know the sounds/feel/rpm, etc. of which gear your in and don't down shift inside the turn :p. I down shift, what feels like, 50 feet before a turn maybe apply light brakes if the engine didn't slow me down enough find the speed I want for the turn and hold at that rpm till the apex of the turn and then accelerate and since the bikes in a lower gear it accelerates way smoother. I don't ride track yet but I'm going for it this summer I feel like engine braking who be an advantage on the track. Also my theory, most people crash because they use they're brakes in turns or slick areas but if you use your engine its more of a steady stopping force so you wont lose traction.
Every step I take to improve myself, improves my vision and my goal ends up being two more steps away.
