My point, which some are arguing, is you would never need to do that, or (and I don't know how this got in the discussion) if you stop while leaned the bike will fall over.

But I agree with your assessment, having to make such a massive correction regularly implies you are cooking turns a lot.

Tell me when you have tons of run off to be able to stand the bike up to brake?


As for braking when turning, everyday I have to go down a hill on a curve, Everyday, I turn, and brake when I am still turning, because there is no other option. If I stand the bike up, I will go slamming into trees.

As for the bike falling over when braking to a stop, really? You would keep the bike leaned over right before you stop?
