It may be a stupid question..... but why do you need/want to start the bike when it's in gear?? Is there some advantage to be gained by this?

It's a genuine query cos I'm confused..

After you stall? After you've turned the bike off at traffic lights? After you've stalled it messing about at traffic lights? When you're bump starting? Because that's the habit you got into on a previous machine? Makes for a quicker getaway after the bank robbery?
Take my advice or not, I really don't care. I'm just telling you what I think and would do on my bike.

Set of from traffic lights - stall the bike - quick, pull in the clutch, jab the starter and off you go (and hope no one has noticed)
