Night riding, braking

I dont know how much riding you do at night, i mean outside the build up area,no street lighting, it's a different ball game again, most bikes headllight's are fairly poor to say the least, if you have to ride at night, slow down! With all this information, your head must be spinning by now! Somebody was talking about braking in one of the post's before, i'll mention it again, practice using the front brake again and again, untill it comes a second nature, dont worry so much about the back, folks have gotten hurt and killed as they stomped on the back brake only, this, throttle is you friend, is true, but so is the front brake!
