yeah, it's recommended if you wanna CRASH!! the rear brake is a lot more sensative to locking up than the front.....in a panic situation, you really think you can finesse the rear brake?

that's not the fastest way to get around a track. if you have to gas through the entire turn, you have entered the turn too slow. unless you are sliding the rear tire through the turn like a motard......then you're doin it wrong.
