I notice that when I ride in small streets with a lot of stop signs and such; I usually come to almost a dead stop before moving on. The thing about this is, should I keep it in 2nd gear or shift back down to 1st when I'm moving off after a stop sign? I'm a very new rider (no school yet) and I ride slowly in small streets and usually use only 2nd gear. With stops sign I always have to shift and clutch a lot.
Okay so here the quesiton, is it detrimental for my bike to roll off in 2nd gear at a stop? Like just use 2nd gear with out any shifting for small streets going at 30/km/hr because all that shifting is unnecessary?
