    Madeline pretty much covered it, but I'll add my hearsay on 33 since the guys I usually ride with love it.

    I'm not sure blipping the throttle is really a skill per se. Like RMRR said, just concentrate on getting the bike moving smoothly between gears, no lurches forward or sudden engine braking. This...

    I'm kinda doing a devil's advocate here, but couldn't that same idea be used as an argument for having newbies cover the brake from the get-go? I know I'd have a hell of a time changing my throttle...

    I don't know if that's a fair analogy, because you can't effectively do it with one foot. If I'm off the gas, think maybe I'll need more than engine braking as I coast towards a slower vehicle, I'll...

    I'm not convinced that my habit of always covering the front brake is better, but I want to throw something out there for thought:

    What if by only covering the brake in situations where braking is...

    This is what I get for always assuming riders don't know their bikes that well :-D . I guess if you know your bike's clearance; in the pic it just looked to me like you were actually counterleaning....

    You could growl at them and move on; growling doesn't take very long.

    I tend to be in the rager camp; I find it much harder to stay chill on a bike because you're more vulnerable to real harm from other people's stupidity. In the cage, I just grin and kinda hope...

    That is exactly the last thing you want, and I'd think risking any highside on the freeway is far and away worse than coming to a full stop. Cars can usually see past you to the next guy's brakes,...
