It's not the speed....it's that sudden stop.

You might have learned that 35 years ago but you would be wrong! It's not magic but you have to understand how the trans works, no harm done at all. FWIW, you can shift a synchro automotive trans without a clutch as well. It's all about understanding how these things work. The only thing you can't do without a clutch is to get going from a stop ... unless you can push really hard or are on an incline.


Quick shifters don't activate the clutch, they only unload the trans. You can do that with your throttle. Dirt bikes do it a lot.

You crack me up.

How big are the ants where you ride?

Is 'to to tat' similar to riding with one hand?

Thanks,

yeah, depends on the road. Some be waaaayyy too bumpy. But. The very nature of riding is a little out on the edge, no? I can relate to the safety attitude. Still cringe at seeing someone riding in a tank top, shorts and flip flops. But letting go once in a while...... eh

I always cover my controls and pull my feet back to right beside brake and shifter in heavy traffic or town. Maybe heel on the boards and toes on the hi way pegs. Get myself in a ready to react position when a car comes up and could go in front of me. But out in the rural areas I live and ride mostly in, sprawled out and yeah, one hand on the bars sometimes. Isn't that what the cruise control is for?

Followed another rider for about 60 miles not long ago. We just ended up beside each other coming out of the city. Every time he caught up with someone or started down a long hill he would shake both hands, loosen them up.

Good points though. Stay safe. Still cringe as well riding with friends that go no helmet. Granted mine is not the top notch protection, half helmet. But just don't feel right with no hard hat.

Your mileage may vary
