Hi guys

Completed my CBT today ahead of my DAS course.

Overall I thought it went well and was I very enjoyable experience. I feel like I am taking to it well despite have no experience on a bike other than 30minute assessment.

The only thing I feel like I am struggling to get to grips with is the emergency stop? I am finding it very challenging to do it without skidding. I know why I am skidding, because I am applying way too much pressure on the rear brake, (as the instructor says) but it is so hard not to as my instinct is not to tap the brake when I am trying to stop immediately!

Any advice welcome but its only my first day on a bike so will hopefully pick it up soon.

hello! I'd say 2 things

1. imagine there's a butterfly under the brake pedal you're trying to stop it flying away not squish it

2. the emergency stop is about stopping in a controlled way not the shortest distance. focus on the technique over the distance :thumb:
