Exactly. Me too. Sometimes I brain fart too, get distracted and don't get down shifted. I hate having traffic wait behind me while I get it back to 1st so I can GO. Usually I too slow the bike by downshifting and approaching a stop from a distance slowly. I try to NOT have to put my feet down.I brain farted today and got stopped without getting to first. I had to sit there and feather the clutch and work the shifter a few times to get into 1st. I will not cast any stones, but you should always downshift before you stop...Heck, it's how I slow down most of the time.
