Yea, not , a lot of riders don't use the rear brake. There's no harm in practicing using both brakes on the street. According to MSF:
Quote:
Always apply both the front and the rear brakes at the same time.

Why don't all of the "instructors" on this thread go out to a parking lot and see who breaks the best.

LOL.
Where getting no where by arguing though, its really up to the rider to decide how he plans to brake. Just to throw in my .02 I only use my back break when im commuting. If I see a red light up a head I pull in my clutch and coast and apply rear brake a little until I stop I don't even mess with the front.

Define best. FYI, they have braking "races" at Colin Edwards boot camp and we used both brakes

I could help you out here...

try not to "coast" with the clutch lever pulled in....be in the right gear.....for when SHTF.

Rear brake, front brake in that case...not relevant, as long as you are stopping.

Rear brake is for wheelie control

Im not slamming on back brake, and I still have my right hand hovering the front if I need it. I have locked the back before but was playing around with it to see how much pressure it would take before locking. and I posted that I only use my rear brake to prove a point that u can use just the rear. Also imo it really depends on what your doing determines if you need to use both or just the front.
