Stopping at a road sign then turning to the right or left never use the front brake with the wheels turn at the same time.It will pull you down every time. I know because I have done just that.

Front Brake

yes I will agree with miss Turner.Always straighten your bike frist before useing your front brake or it will pull you and the bike down if you have the front wheel turned.Please use caution when useing the front brake.

One of the first things they teach in class is to never brake, front or rear in a curve. Always straighten the bike first, or better yet, go slower and ride safer. Ride on.

Never use the front or back in a turn! Always brake BEFORE the turn, then slip the clutch until the very end of the turn, then give it a little gas and power (slowly) out of the turn.

The only time you should use the back brake in a turn is if you are a professional racer and you want to "back" it through the turn or you're on a dirt bike. I don't recommend it.
