what i always wanted for rear brakes,always loathed foot brakes.
learnt to drive in fast rear wheel drive cars and just did the same on bikes,front brakes are only there to warm your feet up!!
couple of times i rigged rear brakes to front brake lever and got threatened with being nicked!!
my perfect setup would be rear brake bar right with throttle
front brake on little lever like these and clutch on bar left.

Oh you are so right, millions of bikers have no idea.........
There is sooo much more braking on bik at the rear wheel. How stuip of all the racers not to use the rear brake only.

Oh dear...

so this is to avoid hitting neutral while shifting... Ha ha then specially Rossi needs this because he is the one who is often complaining about missing a gear or hitting neutral while he messes up in getting of the line...
