Hey all, A friend of mine mentioned he thinks I downshift too much. I've driven manual cars most of the time (including my current car). I don't downshift to slow down but I have a habit of downshifting as I approach a stop or slow to yield, or whatever. My friend says he just pulls the clutch in near his stop then downshifts to 1st. I've only had my bike for a couple weeks, and I'm beginning to learn her sounds. My downshifts now are barely noticeable as far as rpm's. What's common?
