How easily will the front lock up?

I just got an '07 last week and the very biggest difference between it and my previous motorcycle ('92 Nighthawk 750) is that the front brake is MUCH more powerful. I could grab all the front brake all I wanted with the Nighthawk and as long as there was no loose material on the pavement, it was no problem to control. The aggression with which the FZ6 dives and slows with even moderate front brake application makes me wonder how careful I need to be while I'm practicing emergency stops with it (which obviously I'm doing lots of right now since I'm getting familiar with a new bike). How easily will the front lock up with stock pads? Will the rear typically lift before the front locks? I'm referring particularly to when in normal traction conditions. I don't need anyone to tell me that if I'm on a slick spot or loose material that it will lock up easily! But on average decent pavement, how much concern of a front lock up is there?

I do realize that this still depends greatly on tire, relative descriptions of pressure applied, exact pavement quality and everything else, but I just want to see what anyone that has plenty of miles and maybe a few real emergency stops on this bike has to say about the matter.

Thanks in advance!
