Hey guys i planning on going back to trying to learn how to ride, my first lesson ended pretty bad when i came off going about 40km/hr and spent 9 hours in the hospital getting scans. I realized that i am terrified of the idea that i'm going to screw up the gear changing again. The problem i have is that as i'm going down in gears (going up is easy) i can't match the revs properly so the bike "engine brakes and i get throw forward then when i bring revs up to fix the bike jerks forwards and i get thrown back. How do i change gears on the way down without this happening. A mate told me to "blip" the throttle to get the revs high before i let the clutch out but i don't really get how that works.
