I routinely try to shift up another gear while already in 6th.......I live in an area where there is a ton of traffic during the day and not many straightaways but lots and lots of curves so i must keep my head and eyes up and can only steal a glance down at the tachometer on occasion...is that just for looks or for ppl that cant read the tach
and tell what gear their in?
Old Suzuki GS had it in the late 70's onwards.. still good for **** all.What's funny is there is only one person that has commented that has actually rode a bike with a gear indicator (and there are many moto's out there that come stock with it) and they, like I, have liked it. It is not to be used as a constant thing but is a nice feature, but you can do without it. I have been riding over 7 years on both larger and smaller cc bikes and I find nothing wrong with installing a gear indicator. I sure hope those of you saying you don't look at your dash know how fast you are going, if not I am sure the officer will when he pulls you over.
