My question is, when shifting up to increase speed, I clutch in each time I shift up a gear. I also do the same for decreasing my speed, clutching through each gear comming down to 1st. I was told when decreasing speed, I could hold the clutch in and just shift down from 3rd or 4th to 1st without letting the clutch out. This did not make sense to me as I thought you had to bring your speed down for each gear to match rpms.
Hope this makes sense. Can somebody help me with this? I want to shift easily, but also safely.
