Position of clutch hand
when Im downshifting and slowing down and if I have to make a turn, I find it hard to engage the clutch and turn on the signals. usually I accidently press the horn
do you guys keep ur thumb wrapped around the handle?? I find it much easier to clutch and signal if I place my thumb in between the hi-low beam switch and the signal switches when I'm riding. however, I'm afraid I won't have a firm enough grip and my hand might slip (but I'm just paranoid).
any suggestions to make it easier to signal when clutching??
I always (well most of the time) do my signaling before I touch my clutch to downshift. That way I can give the people in front and behind me my intentions. Then I do all my braking and downshifting. Its either that or I just signal in between my downshifts.

What they said. Try signalling between downshifts. And who cares about accidentally sounding the horn. At least the cagers around you become a little more alert, unless they have the radio on...
