You dont need to know what gear you are in.
You are either in the right gear or the wrong gear.

You'll get the hang of shifting soon enough just by riding. If the engine is lugging then shift down, if it's reving too high then shift up.

Stick with it. I remember when I was learning to drive, it seemed like I was getting nowhere at one point, but then it all just sort of clicked together. Plenty of practise, and you'll soon be changing gear without even thinking about it.

He knows not where he's going, for the road it will decide, it's not the destination, but the glory of the ride.

Thanks for the support I guess I've been driving a car for so long and become so dependent on auto trans. I spent a good chunk of today riding around town and I'm definitely getting there. Here in Orlando lots of people ride motorcycles and scooters and I know I've made my share of mistakes in front of other riders.

Sage advice:
Ride everywhere
Ride often
Relax and enjoy the ride.
It ain't the destination. Its the journey.
Listen to your bike. Sound crazy, but just try it.
