Im having a lot of trouble determining when / how to shift gear while riding around. Ill give you what i am currently doing now and see what im doign wrong: - Ok at lights etc, i leave it in first gear and hold the clutch in - when im about to go ill rev up the throttle and slowly release the clutch until im moving -ok now im moving, ill feel the bike start to rev really loudly, so ill back off the throttle completly whilst bringing the clutch and shift into second - then ill back off the revs again bring in the clutch and go into third etc. so i always back off the throttle and slowly bring in the clutch should i be doing it the other way around, or should i be keeping the revs up ? So what am i doign wrong? It feels really jerky and the bike kind of lags until i rev the throttle heaps and bring it back to being smooth again. When im down shifting from fifth, i will just hold the clutch in and keep down shifiting until i reach 1. And a lot of the tiem i end up in neutral in the middle of the road doing this, and also the bike and bike tyre feels really jerky when i do this.
