The only time I use the rear brake that way is when i am on a steep hill. Other then that always front brake or if on the flat no brakes and just my legs and feet to hold it, often with a stand up straight stretch

Reminded me of the 'Shuffle Master'.

Just the intro ...  I have not seen past this.

Enjoy!

I use the Hendon Shuffle when riding in town, but only if I think I'm going to be held at a stop for a little while. It gives my hands a bit of a rest rather than sitting holding both levers, which is what I do for short stops.

This is what puts me off the likes of the IAM. With so many things, "there is more than one way to skin a cat" and riding safely is the same. Whether you Hendon Shuffle or sit with both feet on the ground holding both brake and clutch should not decide if you pass or fail an exam as long as you can show you've considered all (or as many as possible) eventualities and have taken whatever actions are appropriate to mitigate. "Style" is, as always, personal! :)
Correct rear brake use is scientifically proven to shorten stopping distances in EVERY road situation.

Show you know what you're doing and use your rear brake!

The IAM group I ride with and took my IAM test with didn't have this as a failure.
Is this a recent opinion, or one from a while back?

I'd say the IAM is pretty good on the whole - certainly the Coventry bunch - and if anyone hasn't been on advanced training (not you, David!), then do go on one of their trial days.
They want bikers to enjoy their riding, and they want to keep them alive.

The Hendon Shuffle was not a requirement for the West Yorkshire IAM group either.

Well I can’t get both feet down on the deck with the K, can on me Norton, but then, the gear change is on the right so this Hendon malarkey just ain’t happening and back brakes? for me, are when I’m filtering, carry a pillion, hill starts or scrubbing of a little speed prior to taking bends on bikes with teles....each too our own eh?

Short legs and a Norton with right hand gear change? Are you and I related?
