There is a noticeable increase in shift lever pressure necessary to initiate a shift when not using the clutch. It bothers me. Seems not to bother many others.

I can only get smooth shifts downshifting while on the brakes and upshifting while accelerating fairly hard in the upper gears, so I rarely use it anymore. It also occasionally messes up my shifts...

You are right about the noise and visibility. I have a day-glow vest and helmet, but if they're not looking or are on the wrong side of the road in a blind corner, hi-vis stuff doesn't help. Idiots.
