Fixed.

FWIW, I'm with Bevo and Brandon. I tend to blip both street and track, for the same reasons, but moreso out of habit. Downshifting through the gears also keeps you in an appropriate gear, should at any point while decelerating, an emergency or last second situation arise that requires you to apply some throttle to quickly get out of that situation.

I put a little pressure on the shifter, and when I want the gear to go down, I just raise rpms a tiny bit, and the gear slides into place on its own, and then I'm also at the right rpm for that gear. the same for upshifting - light pressure on the shifter, and a slight downturn of throttle, then back on. it really takes less coordination than you think, but under hard acceleration, it's a little smoother after a lot of practice, and still better with a bit of clutch.

I don't use the clutch at all when upshifting in gears 2-6 at any RPM. The Honda is so freaking smooth you can't even feel the gear change, plus it saves on clutch cable wear
