The MSF guys are pretty much against anything not using 4 fingers for braking. My instructors were kind of inconsistent with when to cover and when not to. Depending on the drill, they would suggest to cover the brakes or not. I myself don’t cover, it just feels wierd and gives me the sense of not having more feel of the throttle. Although, if i’ve deemed an upcoming situation as sketchy via S.E.E., i instantly slow down and cover with 2 fingers and possibly brake with 2 fingers. On modern bikes, you’ll get the “same” stopping power using 2 or 4 fingers on the lever.
If there’s anything more important than my ego
around, I want it caught and shot now…
