Yeah, I follered a young feller down the canyon last weekend who subscribed to the "brakes only" philosophy. They was glowin' bright red at the bottom, smelled really good, an' I thought I saw the brake fluid smokin' when he finally managed to slow and pull off the road.

Amen! We were driving to Phoenix last summer with my in-laws (two separate cars), and she was asking how I got down a steep canyon without hitting the brakes. Glad I could impart a little wisdom that day!
