Default Re: Recommendations for running just a rear brake...

just remember ,back in the day,
Harley and Brit bike brakes were SHIT!!.....
you may as well not had brakes on the front so some removed them, if for no other reason to save the weight of a non working item of equiptment........
you also gotta remember that back the 60's there were 1/8 of the cars on the road than there is today,
Roads were also in better condition.............
and Bikes were a lot slower than they are today,
All in all,I wouldn't go that way in the modern times that we have to live and ride in.
but If you want the best rear brake you can get I'd go for PM,
great quality and the work great,
but even with the best rear brake in the world you will still not regain the 70% of braking you will have lost by ditching the front....
as Pink Floyd put it in ''Two Suns in the sunset''

''Like the moment when the brakes lock
And you slide towards the big truck
You stretch the frozen moments with your fear.
And you'll never hear their voices
And you'll never see their faces
You have no recourse to the law anymore
