Assuming your riding a bike that can lift the rear wheel (aka not a harely). If you don't have 100% weight transfer (or damn close to it) then you're doing a bad job of "emergency" braking.
I've seen a Heritage Softail with its ass 4 feet in the air.
For that matter the with the ABS touring bikes ...good luck stopping on a CBR as fast as one of those things.
So far as it goes a buddy who had his rear brake fail in a race "For something that I never use, I sure as hell missed it when it wasn't there." and it wasn't like he went offroading, he finished 2nd.
