Stopping without a foot down is a skill taught by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. It's a useful balance exercise. That ticket should be fought in court.
No, we don't. We teach a ""pause and go", where you all but stop, not putting your feet down ( pause), ease out the clutch, and go. Yes, it's like a California stop, but its proper use is yields, stop-and-go traffic, and timing lights to hit the green while still moving.

I’m surprised you are teaching a rolling stop. Seems like you are making it easy to contest a citation in court then. A rolling stop is not legal in this state and many others.
Yields, stop-and-go traffic, timing the light so you hit it green. No mention of a rolling stop. Does it happen in real life? Yep.;)
The best way to communicate to other road users that you're really going to stop is to put your foot down.(y)

Spent some time riding in the city the other day and found myself doing just this A LOT. (y) :cool:
