For me it is easier to control the bike in tight turns with the rear brake. Bad habit from dirt bikes but works with modern ABS bike without link from rear to front like the K1600. Coming to a stop at a light on a bad, bumpy surface is easier for me using the rear brake for the last 1 or 2 meters. If you apply the front brake a little too hard and you experience a side force from the bad road surface, you gonna need help to lift the bike.
When I had a safety training last year, we were taught this method in particular for the top heavy rigs.
