On the Interstate might be the best time to have it. If you slow for traffic ahead of you, a driver behind you may not realize in time that you are slowing.Randy said:... I am not sure I would want that lets say riding in a group or traffic on an interstate but I can see were it would be nice in town and the suburbs
Ditto that. got into the habit with my first bike, and it's now automatic...wilder days said:save yourself some money, just get in the habit of touching the brake handle each time you slow down. I got in the habit of pulling slightly on my brake lever each time I was slowing down...making the brake light flash on and off a few times. Something like the electric flasher you can put on bikes. Believe me, it won't take long to get in the habit, and once it does, it will come automatically to you to do it.
