Just curious as to the traits everyone has in thier riding styles. Anyone have a good luck phobia they have to do. I use my heel to shift up and toe to shift down. Except first. Usually put the bike in neutral at red lights. Unless I'm in stop and go traffic I use the back brake to slow down with the front as an assist only. I usually rest my fingers on the brake and clutch levers unless the road is rough or approaching a sharp corner and I rarely ride with one hand. Fingers never get tired this way. When the wife gets on she stands on the rear footpad which gives her some height to clear the back rest. I have a habit to leave the kick stand out until she is on and usually put it out before she gets off. Figure if my foot ever slips on that side at least it will prevent the bike from going over on that side.
