You know, most people think that brakes are for stopping, but really brakes are but one part of a vehicle’s speed control system. Learning that one concept- that the brakes on my bicycle or my car are one part of a speed control system and that the accelerator (or my legs), the transmission and the brakes must all be used together and with forethought, foresight and coordination changed how I rode and drove, for the better.

As Sir Jackie Stewart has pointed out, time and again, smooth is fast, smooth is safe, smooth wins.
