It does also depend on the bike you were on.

Ill brake (or is it break getting a bit confused now lol) It down for different bikes.

My KLR, front brake is not very good, so I have to use the rear brake to slow also.
SV650: I Don't use the rear brake at all
Monster 695: I Don't use the rear brake.

I am not saying I am 100% right, just saying how I see it and am looking for other opinions.
As good as your front brake is you're still going to have to use your rear from time to time.....or crash..or just never ride in slippy conditions.
