Technology / Motorcycle / Riding The Clutch: A clutch generally consists of a disk which, in its normal state, connects the engine to the transmission. When the motorcycle is driving along, the mechanism is released or "engaged". During a stop at traffic lights, the right hand lever is pulled in to "disengage" it. "Riding the clutch" means holding the point of friction, right at the point where engine and transmission are only just coupled. Excessive use of this technique can cause early wear of the mechanism.
