That's actually related to another worry of mine, namely the downsides of P&G. No matter how smooth I release the clutch there's always that slight "snag" which I don't imagine is good for the mechanics in the long run.

Also, a more serious issue is that my concentration on the road is impacted since I'm having to keep an eye on the speedometer. Not good at all!
