My ex-step used to call that "feathering". If you do it right, you can shift into gears with just the force of one finger. Too many people "think" they can do it by jamming it in - big no-no.

There isn't an problem if you do it right, but takes a lot of practice to get the revs right for the speed and gear. Him and me are the only one's I've ever seen do it right.
