When you want to re-engage the engine just adjust the throttle depending on your speed and release the clutch handle, you will get the hang of it after a while. Also, ride under the assumption that nobody else on the road can see you because most of the time, they don't.
Thanks for that.... I was wondering about riding down hill. Great tips guys / gals.
