Being smooth with the clutch / throttle engagement is not rare.
I'm just saying (just like the other inmates) that you should be done with it before entering the turn. That way you are already on the throttle when approaching and in the turn (steady speed, same partial throttle opening) and don't spend any brain power on the required smooth coordination of clutch and throttle.
Holding your throttle open at a steady position is more fool-proof than clutch/throttle play, even if you're good at it.
