I really like my Triumph shorties, though personally I'd be equally happy with the adjustable regular length ones. I've got the bar end mirrors to protect them should I ever drop the bike, anyway.

The stock ones just get in the way. Plenty of control if not more with the shortys for me and I have large wide hands. One of the cheaper better mods I did.

I am currently running a shorty brake, and a long clutch. Like it much better this way. Generally I brake with just my middle finger. However, if I need more force, I use my index too.

For clutch four fingers most of the time. Except for up-shifts at speed or slipping the clutch. For that I only use my middle finger as well. All it takes is a slight pressure on the lever.

^ Agreed. I'm very comfortable with short brake/long clutch. It's nice to be able to have a firm grip on the throttle while still being able to tap that brake with one or two fingers without the rest getting in the way.
