Clutch when Shifting

Ok so I learned today the reasons why you should always use your clutch when shifting but asking around there are a lot of people who only use it in first and reverse.

What do you do or dont do???

Always use it. Maybe out of habit. Also I feel guilty not using it, like I am hurting the xx.

Always use my clutch, maybe that's why I don't go no where LMAO!!

Have used the clutch ever since I learned to ride, once in awhile I might hit the shifter without using the clutch and it changes my gear but that's rare.

Some people do use it only to start rolling then they just shift gears without the clutch, they just roll back the throttle but again I had a friend that used to drag race and he would use it to start rolling then would just shift keeping the throttle wide open, pretty sure after each race he would check his gears for wear and tear.

I use the clutch most of the time. A lot of the time when just cruising I just shift. Didn't vote because there is no option for most of the time/sometimes. Same on my motorcycles. Under hard accel I use the clutch because a screw up under full power may cost me some cash and garage time. I know it is faster in a race to not use the clutch, but I would rather lose and be riding the next day than win and spend the next day(s) fixing what I broke.

If it has a clutch and a stock tranny I use the clutch when shifting. If the tranny has been "proshifted" then you dont have to use the clutch to shift up but you cannot let off the gas without pulling in the clutch or youl jam up the shift forks. Its a drag only mod.
