I have always used both brakes 100% of the time ( feels more stable) as far as bias I would think maybe 25% rear. Just enough to stabilize the chassis. I was never taught this by anyone. I learned how to ride dirt first and this was how it felt good to me. Tried just using front brake only on my sport bike but that did not last long. Minimal rear works best to ME

I would get the thumb or hand brake for slow maneuvering or wheelies. Just use the front brake for regular riding and get a two cylinder bike that has more engine braking and modulate the clutch as your rear brake. If you have a cruiser I would ditch that. You need the rear brake on cruisers more than sportier bikes.

Don't underestimate your ability to adapt after the surgery. I have a riding buddy that has his right wrist fused and you would never know it. He rips on both the street and the dirt.
