Before we had all of the electronics, you either had a slipping clutch or you didn't.

The throttle was totally controlled by your right hand.

If you had a slipping clutch, you learned not to be as aggressive with the throttle.

You also learned to properly adjust your clutch ... And all of the other cable-operated items.
