How do you deal with the topic if it arises with Associates?
I've ignored it up to now but thought I'd test the water with a comment on there.

Don't you mean "I went in too hot and had to trail brake to get round". Trail braking is a skill. A great skill to master on a piece of road you are riding repeatedly ... oh, yes, a track. A place where you can explore how much you can get away with. The road is different every time you ride it, or this may be the only time in your life you ever ride through that particular bend. Do you really want to go in using up some of the braking power you have, loading up the front, and requiring more steering input to get the bike to lean/turn in as it wants to sit up and go straight on? What happens as the view round the bend opens up, and you are confronted with a hazard? You only have 100% of tyre grip. You can use it to lean/steer, brake or accelerate. 60% + 60% = pain. There's a reason why slow in fast out is best on the road. It is the safest.
