2. Brake Right

Motorcyclist - - Garage -

Ap­ply­ing the brakes off road re­quires a dif­fer­ent tech­nique than street rid­ing and is best per­formed while com­pletely up­right. In­stead of us­ing pre­dom­i­nantly front brake like you would on clean, dry pave­ment, you use a light amount of front brake in fa­vor of more rear brake. Most front brake set­ups are quite powerful, mak­ing them hard to con­trol on loose sur­faces. The rear brake is typ­i­cally less sen­si­tive, and skid­ding the rear tire is a lot less risky than los­ing trac­tion with the front.
