Pre corner braking & body position.
Having some difficulty with hard braking corner entries.
My instructor tells me that under hard braking, I should squeeze the gas tank with my knees while moving my butt into position for the next corner. But, when I watch those MotoGP guys, they don't do this. They brake hard with their knee already out (not locked to the tank). When I try this, I am able to enter corners smoother b/c my knee is already out and my body is in position. But, the bike feels like it will throw me over b/c my weight is all the way to the front due to me not locking on to the tank (which keeps my weight to the back of the bike)
So, what is the correct braking method for tight turns?
