Your Grandad was right (off road)

Its sort of sad thats what my grandfather and dad both taught me when i was little. My dad rode with out the front brake all his life, only had one accident and it involved a tree in the middle of the woods. Then again the biggest bike he rode was under 200ccs and he didn't see too much road time.
Your grandad and dad taught you right for the dirt they were riding. Off road riding emphasizes the rear brake a lot more than street riding does, it's just incredibly easy to lock up the front. For those with Long Way Down, Ewan does a classic front brake lockup crash in the movie. Doesn't work so well on the street though.
