braking before a corner, letting off, turning in, neutral throttle, then get on the gas is the newb way, and it upsets the suspension and chassis a bit. (this is NOT the ideal way to enter a turn)
Trail braking IS the ideal way to enter a turn. trail braking is a spectacular way to help settle the bike into the corner. i'm not going to get into it, but i suggest you purchase some reading on motorcycle riding techniques, such as twist of the wrist 1 and 2.
also completely depends on where you are doing the turning, canyon's or at the track? location also depends on body position. at the track my body is set up for the corner on the exit of the previous corner. i never have two cheeks on the seat except for the frotn straight away.
