I didn't get a hit on my forum searches, although I have to think this has been asked before. I never gave it much thought until today. What is the 'proper' way to shut off the engine? I've always used the kill switch - it's on the handlebars, I can shut the bike off with the brakes on, clutch disengaged, hands on the bars, yada yada. A biker friend of mine told me that he considered it an emergency kill switch, and that he always used the ignition switch to shut down the bike - apparently he had some bad experiences with the bike not starting because of bad contacts on the handlebar switch, etc. Is there a 'correct' way, does it matter? Inquiring minds... well, never mind. Thanks for your feedback.
