Out of habit and my riding style i downshift through each gear as i slow to a stop and most of the time use the engine braking along with the brakes. I usually don't blip the throttle. But it doesn't make too much of a difference to me becuase i don't dump the clutch after every down shift. It's more of a slow smooth let out of the lever into the gear. I always use the clutch when i downshift. Main reason is just habit. I've always done that.

Get most of your braking done and then blip the downshifts. That way the bike isn't bouncing around on you...
You don't need blipping if you're smooth, which I am usually not.

so bliping is just usually a way to make down shifting smoother yes?

I roll off, shift it up, roll back on throttle. The whole thing takes minimal time.
It is not bad and your tranny.

Bliping makes it smoother and saves wear on the tire and clutch.

Clutchless upshifting does no harm whatsoever if done properly
Preload the shifter, let off the throttle, then shift

The reason I ask is that on the street, there's really no reason to bother. On the track, well, from what I've seen the really fast goes don't blip per se. They just hold a little bit of throttle as they roll off. Blipping unsettles the bike.

For a lot of riders its difficult to perform the action while on the brakes without wiggling the body, but also the action of the crank as the rpm's change quickly moves the bike.

These are words directly out of the mouth of Jason Pridmore. I'm kinda inclined to believe he knows what he's talking about.

I've read about Pridmore's downshifting technique. He is referring to not blipping the throttle on the first or second downshift and blipping every gear after that. So it goes WOT, clutch, stay on the throttle, bang bang down a gear or two, off the throttle, brake, blip through the rest of the gears.

I tihnk he is one of the few that don't blip. Kinda like Tony Elias and his poor body position. one of the few.
