What KM said!! Don't rely on the rear brakes only since 2/3 of your braking power comes from the front brakes. I had a hard time with this since when I rode dirt bikes, you never, ever touched the front brakes unless you wanted to be thrown over the handlebars. Once I figured out the front brakes are your friend, I also learned that it's very important to keep them serviced properly. A can of DOT 3 or 4 brake fluid is less than $10 or one tank of gas.
