What??
you don't like to see the funnies in the New Posts?

that gives me an idea, I will ask the IT Team to create a special New Posts that excludes the Fun Forum..... back when I know something on that.

A good idea I suppose. The 1500 has a 5th gear indicator and I still have caught myself riding 50 miles down the highway in 4th gear at times.

It is good especially when you dont want to shift down to 1st gear suddenly while slowing down. And good to know whether you are at 3rd or 4th gear on a curvy road.

First class job...really well done. I'm sure if it was "plug and play" you would sell loads of them. I would want one. It seems even better than the factory gear indicators on many new bikes. A friend just brought a Kawasaki Versys and the gear indicator goes to a blank screen when the clutch is pulled in so you can't see whether you are in first gear when stopped (I expect we've all pulled off in second gear by mistake at times!).

Thank you for the complements.
Actually it can be easily made "plug and play", but I hadn't intended to sell something, marketing is an other area that I haven't been in before, but the cost of it is so low that it would be a quite profitable business, I believe.

Just yesterday with my mind on the wife's problems in the hospital... I got caught up in thick and slow traffic, staying alive more important than getting the shifter down a few notches.

Left Turn signal goes green and the expected surge is not there.
aha! the 5th gear yellow light is still burning

no matter, the mighty 1800 just grunted a bit, the throttle opened up a bit, the shifter went to 4th and off we went..... mind you, this is on a left hand turn into a very narrow up ramp, so traffic is not honking at me to "get the hell out of the way"..... once I got straightened up on that 'on ramp', I down shifted to 3rd and from 20 mph we took off smartly.

so, yes, we all do it.
