Seems the most prolific Motogp champion has mastered it and other pros finally catching on.

But I get it, CMRA is still amateur racing.
Full of fail coming from a guy whose only time on a racetrack was illegally riding a scooter at TWS (Texas World Speedway).

OP gets mad after thread jacking. The next most reasonable thing to do must be to start a new thread :/

Let the trolling begin, again.

If I have interlocked brakes do I still need to use the rear brake lever to add magical unicorn stopping power?

I don't use it, but I've been thinking about trying it. Not so much for stopping power, but for loading the front and rear suspension at the same time to settle the bike. AMA guys use the out of the rear brake, some turns they use the rear brake only. It's all preference I'm sure.

Your answer is the second video (inside insight) posted above.

After viewing, How do you feel? Like someone didn't teach you right?

I never get mad.

Started a new thread cause this "don't use rear brake" stuff has got to end. Teachin noobs that it is not necessary is ridiculous. This has been a 4 year mission. haha

I've provided enough info from guys faster than everyone on this forum.

Rear brake is a street skill as well, not necessarily to be fast but to be a better rider.

Partly to reduce rotating/unsprung weight, and also to make it difficult if not impossible to lock up when used.
The hardest part is learning to use the rear at the limit without lockup. There are tricks and adjustments to help in that respect.
