Default Clutch problem or normal?

Yesterday on my way home from work sitting in traffic i noticed something. When i have my clutch pulled my bike seems fine and feels fine. But when i let it out(in neutral), When it hits the friction point and when i let it completely out i seem to have a vibrating/ rough feeling and i can sort of hear it. Is this normal or do i have a clutch problem?

I think I know what your talking about and mine does that too, So either it is normal or I would like to know what it is to

you are just feeling the engine engaging the transmission(neutral) after its past the friction point. With the clutch pulled in, you are disengaging the power from the engine to the transmission. It does it on all bikes ive been on. So it seems to be normal.

Mine does the same thing, I can hear a whirring noise, my dad's '82 Goldwing makes the exact same noise.
