Bottom line is you will not stop as quick or as safe as you would if you are using both front and rear brakes. Even before taking my safety course I never considered using only one brake.
I agree, after a 20 year break riding, i went back and did the riding course, i use to be a front brake user 99% of the time, after a few runs using both brakes, i reduced my braking distances by about 1/3rd. I have only locked the rear up once, during an emergency stop, pulling a 125lb trailer with 150lbs of gear in it, cut off by a car, i stopped in time but ended up with a "pucker" factor of 9.25.
As i flipped into 5th, i couldnt remember a damn thing she said
