A Curiosity Question About Stopping and When To Buy A Bike
I recently finished the MSF Basic Rider Course. I was taught in that class to use the front break, rear break, and to pull the clutch in when stopping. So now when I am at a red light in traffic (in my car), I notice that motorcyclists also stopped at the same light do not have the clutch pulled in. Their bike is still running...so they did not stall. Did they put it in neutral once stopped...and then once the light turns green they put it into 1st gear and slowly release the clutch to get going? I don't see them switch gears, but maybe they do it so fast.
I also don't have a bike of my own. Even though I am licensed now, I don't think now is the best time for me to get a bike due to financial reasons. It seems common for a new rider to purchase a bike once they get licensed, but I don't know when I'll get on a bike again. Will this hurt me in the future? Or do you typically pick up where you left off once you get back on?
