Default Re: Do you pedal when riding

After the engine starts and from dead stops I pedal just enough to not lug down the engine. From there I only move the pedals to position for curves/turns to keep the low pedal to the outside. I'm a lightweight and can actually pull off from a dead stop if I want but I usually pedal up to about 10mph to keep from stressing the clutch then I sit back and let the engine do the rest.

A couple of my freinds 'ghost pedal' when they see a cop or approaching oncoming bikes on a trail but I rarely if ever do it.
