I've a good friend who teaches the local "How to ride like a motorman" classes with the Police Department. He and I had a ride together recently and he commented he noticed I don't use my friction zone for turning tight turns. I told him I don't let the clutch slip because that's how I was taught to drive a stick-shift automobile. He said motorcycle clutches are designed to be slipped....or used in the friction zone. I've been wanting to learn how to properly negotiate U-turns and handle-bar locked turns and he says that's the only way it can be done properly. I've been watching some of the Jerry Palidin videos and he mentions the friction zone almost every time he opens his mouth. So I ask you, fellow Rebel owners, just how stout is the clutch plate on the Rebel 250?????
