Hmmm, I would like to challenge keeping ball of your feet on the pegs. If something happens and you have to brake suddenly, then you have to move your feet first and then you can press the rear brake. Also, in case of situation going bad, there is one more thing to think about, which I do not believe is wise. All in all, I`ll just keep my foot on the pegs, not the ball. Find the advice not wise.
