That's the way mine was taught. Sorry "all-mighty master of the bike" for giving a suggestion based on my learning experience at MSF. I never realized that two people could learn things different ways... and certainly forgot that a discussion forum is NOT for the exchange of ideas and information based on passed experiences.
Don't leave your pillow too salty there dude.

Hey just because the owners manual says the opposite of what you said doesn't mean im all-mighty master of the bike. Its not my fault I was 1 of the few people that actually did read their owners manual.
Also, I am not the one going around giving false information saying you're suppose to use your kill switch as normal procedure.
You were taught wrong if they told you in MSF its for normal procedure starts.
Oh crap, My MSF book is sitting around here somewhere, I should scan the page they tell you how to start a bike too, then it may just prove you didn't read anything, the MSF book or the owners manual.
But hey, I don't mind you saying its normal procedure, but if you wanna say that, Please provide proof of why were suppose to do it that way.
a so called proper procedure means nothing to me without a convincing reason for it.... And don't say its so you can remember where it is... That's ridiculous.
Just like Deanohh said, It means nothing without a convincing reason to do it.
PS: I just opened my MSF book to page 17, It does mention the kill switch but they only say "Engine Cut-off switch - It is near the right handgrip and is operated with the right thumb. It allows you to shut off the engine without removing your hand from the handlebar. "
So it doesn't really say how to use it, just more less says what it is.
