Back to ABS

Ok, back to integral ABS brakes for 2009 K1200LT. First let me say this is my first BMW. Had a 1970s Honda CB450 followed by a 1975 Honda GL1000, which I had for many years. I just got this bike new and have not ridden MCs in 17 years. I am 56 and the top-heaviness is something to get used to. Anyway, when applying the foot brake what percentage of braking power is exerted to the rear brake and what percentage to the front brake?? Also, same for the hand brake?? Or are the percentages reversed??? I searched the WEB for information but was unable to find a site for this information. If my understanding is correct, the integral portion is not working, I believe, between 2 and 5 mls per hour. If anyone can clarify this. Or even add to my confusion ;-) it would be very much appreciated!
