    I tried that once.
    Why engage the driving and braking devices together.
    Ease off the gas pull in the clutch and apply the brakes to gracefully stop.

    Don't sweat it - sometimes we get all mixed up - especially us wankers with two freewheels, multigears, etc.

    Heck- having to remember the clutch? Too complicated for me- I let the centrifugal clutch think for me. ;)
