FJR electronic shifting

I just read a thing in Motorcyclist, and maybe it's already been discussed here but I didn't find anything in the search. Sorry if it's a

The article ade it sound like clutch free shifting with either a thumb/index paddle shifter and the traditional foot shifter just not attached to the gearbox.

thought? opinions? etc? Personally I would rather have the control of the clutch but that's just me.

I used a paddle knee slapper shifter on a drag bike. That's about the only use I would have for it.
Clutch will remain at my hands.

i read that in motorcyclist too. Like alot of things, the market will tell if its a good idea or not. Should be ideal for the FJR and its intended purpose. NEVER NEVER NEVER on a sportbike.

The market will tell if we like it or not. Doesn't matter if its any good. Kind of like the Hondamatics.

We had a customer order one...I'll let you know what it's like if I ride it.

Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.
