I think it's a practice thing. Also make sure your front wheel is straight when stopping. If you use the front brake and the wheel is turned to the side, you will likely be picking it up off the ground. Personally I have never thought the amount of fuel in the tank made it feel any different to me. Riding slow I try to use the rear brake only.
It matters not how good you are if an angel pees on the flintlock of your musket.
