I set mine up with the clutch and rear brake on the left, and the front brake on the right. When I'm planning a complete stop I lock the clutch then grab both brakes. I prefer the type of clutch lever with the spring loaded lock that clicks on whenever you pull the lever.
I also have the combo lever, one side is further from pivot, and has more leverage, make that the rear brake, the other cable retainer is closer to pivot, make that the front brake. Set the rear brake tight, front brake loose, kinda like an old Moto Guzzi Ambassador, with 60 / 40 brakes.
