Hey John,

By moto style, you mean front brake on the right and rear brake on the left, which is opposite the American bicycle standard.

If you ride moto and only ride your own bicycles, it’s a great idea. Consistency.

If you ride other people’s bike — bad idea!!!

No real advantage other than consistency between platforms.

When I first started riding moto, I occasionally grabbed the front brake when I wanted the rear. Whew, scary! Now I can switch between bike and moto without any trouble. Something about 200 braaaping pounds between your legs feels really different!

Have I said braaap?
