I probably didn't make my question clear enough, Poncho, and I appreciate your feedback. I'm not talking about clutch feathering at extreme speeds or riding like you suggest, Rocketman-style. Like you said in your third paragraph, "at slow speeds, it's just another way to maintain control". I get that, and that's exactly the situation I referred to in my original question. I'm only talking about a situation where, for example, I have to make a tight U-turn in the narrow width available to me. Then, I use the "friction-zone", clutch-feathering I was talking about for more control, which is what the videos are trying to teach to newbies. That's not my question. I just wondered if bikes can maybe better handle this kind of clutch "abuse" that I don't give to cars/trucks; or not. I didn't know if bike clutches were made in a completely different manner than cars. Which I suppose they are, based on your explanation about clutch baskets, although I still don't know if that even applies to a '14 Valk. Anyway, not losing any sleep over it. Just curious. Thanks again!
