I'm just curious on how people use their brakes. I find I'm always using just the front brake and rarely the back. I find using the back brake awkward and realise I more than likely need to practice more but just how many of us ignore the back brake. In an emergency stop using front and back will pull you up a few meters shorter but in the panic of the moment too much back brake could cause you to loose control and crash anyway. I was reading a thread in the general section about yesterdays wet weather where one posters mentioned coming to a stop in the wet using back brakes and loosing traction causing his bikes back end to swerve left and right and almost lost it.
