I always blip the throttle when downshifting.RaggedEdge said:I blip the throttle virtually every time I downshift. Doesn't everyone, and if not, why not? :idunno:
Probably would be better if one of the "skilled" members would properly explain it... :crap:freq said:well, enlighten us then. what is it?

It's not real productive on the street because I never get into the RPM range where it's required. I guess I'm also not that great at it because I have trouble doing it accurately at low RPM. I also have small hands so I can't blip and brake at the same time. Anyone do that? I've never been able to rotate my hand on the grip while at the same time maintain a smooth braking squeeze on the lever. One of the two ends up jerking.... :rant:
