    1 generally, but 2 when I know that I'll have to stop really hard. Voted for 1 since that's the most I use. Always have the practise of having your finger(s) on the brake lever while riding

    Single Index Finger :P
    I think that gives you ample of grip which is needed in the traffic and also at the same time much force.

    Default 2-3 fingersdepending on type of brake...

    Actually it depends on the type of brake - drum/disc and also the bikers comfort level...On my dio i use 3 fingers to brake....for like safe 70-to-0 km/hr braking....back when i use to ride my pulsar 150, since it had disc brakes 2 fingers sufficed....Another factor that might come into play here is how one brakes...on geared bikes, good braking is a combination of gear control and using both brakes ....

    I used to use 2 fingers for braking. Middle and the ring finger.

    Then I had a accident some months back and couldnt use my ring finger for braking as the wound was fresh and I ended up getting used to using only one finger(middle finger).
