Quick Shifter usage - a poll

As someone who is old to motorcycles and new to quick shifters, I'm curious how people tend to use the clutch (or not) vs the QS.

I didnt vote as I dont want to skew the results.

At present I dont use my QS as it is not working, but when I did use it, it was for anything spirited above 2nd gear. Both up and down.

After it started playing up, I decided to disable it completely. This is when I discovered how easy it is to Clutchless shift! Been doing it for ages. Now my bike is in for repair and I have a Stradale with a dependable QS, so I now use it.

But what I would actually love to have (and use) is a QS upshift and normal downshift, so I can Clutchless downshift.

Once you experience the quickshifter you'll wish you had it on every bike.
But where it shines the most is on the track.

Definitely works better at higher revs but, I use it all the time. Very occasionally, I will clutch but, honestly, the QS is great.

For me the QS is totally addictive.
Makes me think that it would be nice to have one on the F4.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

This is my first bike with a quick shifter and I use it almost every single shift hahaha! I just love it so much!! Except for when I'm going very slowly through traffic.
