I think you need to learn how to operate your machine. The engine brake is predicable.Well one time I was heading down a mountain trail that was mountain on one side and drop off on the other side.Engine brake the only way to go in the mountain west. Love the engine brake. So much safer on the downs and so much better control.
I was coming up on a corner let up on the gas the back tires locked up in the soft dirt it started to slide side ways and nearly pitched me over the edge.
Another time I was backing off my trailer on 8' ramps. I had to give it gas to get over the hump at the top then I let off the gas the back tires locked up and nearly pitched me off the ramps.
There was another time I was coming down a smooth granite face I let off the gas and....well you get the idea.
This is why I DO NOT like the Engine Break
