I'm guessing i'm the only person that will very occasionally use the rear brake to shave off a couple mph in a turn. Very very light application, but it works pretty good. I also used the mess out of it the one time I found myself on 5 miles of dirt roads to no where. :)
Yep, there's plenty of times when it's a useful tool.

To use the rear brake on the street over 10mph is just suicide due to the higher risk of locking it up.
What a load of rubbish.

Heh, you won't learn by ignoring it :lol:

It's good for heaps of stuff... dipping the front end a little before getting on the fronts, controlling the mad rear wheel on crazy down shifting into cornerns... locking the rear up to bring the bike in supermotard styles... settling the rear suspension... bleeding some speed when you don't want to compromise front grip :D
