    thanks for approving sunil...
    i always use 2, as the grip of the hand is also important, some people use 4, but what about the grip of the handlebar??

    IMHO, 2 fingers should be the ideal one. But again it would differ from person to person & riding conditions as Sunilg mentioned.

    @ TS : how would it help you if a bunch of guys use 2 fingers and other bunch of guys who use 3 fingers and there are many who use a single finger.

    No offence brother , but i dint get the purpose of such a thread ?
    if 40% people would answer 2 and 40% answers 3 fingers and 10% says 1 and the remaining 10% say 4 fingers !!
    how would it make a difference to you ?

    P.S : Just go with your intinct and use the fingers accordingly...

    and BTW FYI i use middle finger. breaking

    I use 1 finger for any speed, 2 during rainy weather. Anything more, there is a chance of front end washout on my bike - P150.
    Your biking tells a lot about the person you are!

    I've been using two fingers from the beginning and all my friends use 3, one of them uses 1, so i started noticing people on the streets as how many do they use...
    from some days I've been keeping an eye on almost every rider...
    i don't know why but that bug was biting me..
    i recently saw a documentary in which Colin Edwards said he uses 1, so i was quite eager to know what xBHPians would answer, hence i started the thread...
    i agree it serves no purpose, but its just a basic study for information purposes...
