  • I trail break on my big road bike, its helps. If you top into a new corner, if somethings in the way or it suddenly tightens up, the front is already loaded with brake so you can get hard on the brakes quicker.

  • i do feel all that you said, but on my KTM dirt bike while going downhill

    aplying front brake does make the bike more responsive to steering, it better follows every input than it does when coasting or rear breaking

    on a dirt bike u can practice this allot
