Well, I screwed up my own poll...I voted for left down, even though I generally use my right foot. I don't know why, somehow i just clicked left.
Would someone who hasn't voted, who would vote left foot down, vote right foot for me? and post it up right afterwards to not waste a additional vote?
I like the reasons up here for foot use, especially Googleits wheelieing management
Ya it pretty much varies situation to situation, so maybe what we do more often just reelects what sort of riding situations we're in. Out here in Lala land, riding a bike through non highway traffic is like being a series chaser. I catch up to a school of cars, get to the light, sit, then repeat the process.
My right foot down policy reflects how as i approach a stop, i small click the bike into neutral, sit and relax if possible with all hands off the brake(s) to relax a bit, since I'm splitting lanes, I'm usually clear from the rear. I do this partly because way back in the day when i was learning to drive, an old friend of my fathers told me, if your'e not shifting or getting ready to shift, don't use your clutch, it'll last longer that way. This way I'm ready to put it into first 2 seconds before light change and then i'm off.
