Hi Ken,

Thanks for the post and for what you are doing to improve our sport

Having an example of brake timing is great, if only there was a rear facing green “throttle light”!

Here is a recent one of you at thunderhill east. That brake light is helpful, is it very sensitive to your lever movement? As soon as the lever moves the light engages? Or is it more pressure based and thus delayed slightly?

A good exercise seems to be following along these videos and duplicating your brake timing and scoring myself per corner. My turn 3 is pretty bad due to my misunderstanding of front grip related to loaded vs unloaded tire combined with an off camber corner.
