According to what I found on a Speed Shop website it mentions you only use the clutch once and the rest is done without, it cuts out the ignition for a split second to change gears. The site shows a video on how it works.

I don't know if you have ever accidentally done a downshift or up shift without using the clutch but bikes often are quite capable clutchless shifters if the right rpms and loads are met. Many riders do it routinely. The Pingel has a control module that as I understand it interrupts the ignition and allows smooth shifts without using the clutch. Have never ridden one but many handicapped riders use them. Am not sure just how it works for starts and stops.

Ok, But that is not going to help when sitting in a traffic jam and hand holding clutch for loooooong time. That is where I have a problem. That and after a long ride where I have clutched a hundred times or so. I find myself locking my fingers and pulling straight back with my arm! That makes for some interesting control issues.

I know they call it a "dual-clutch" system, but it has no clutch lever.

Why ain't we ridin'?

I was staring at one of them in the showroom one day and walking around it and looking and walking and looking, finally the salesman walked over and said "it doesn't have one" and smiled. He caught me by surprise and I said doesn't have what? He said a clutch, I saw you looking all over for the clutch and shifter. He told me it is amusing to watch customers come in and they all do the same thing.

Yeah, that's kinda where I am at. But I sure won't get a new GW unless I unload some (all) of present fleet.

You guys are making me feel downright young (age wise anyway) at 65! Problem is that I beat my body up pretty good when I was younger racing cars, bike, boats and anything else that would go fast under it's own power. And you know if you race it you will crash it. Didn't feel it back then but......................................... Paying the piper now.
