I noticed that after the fact.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

You are right, that is the way the date on my camera is set, and it was April 11th 2018.

Cars & trucks have synchronizer mechanisms to brake or slow the shift sleave to match the next gear, bikes have no such. Gears for the various ratios are freely rotating on a shaft until this sleave is moved against it., the sleave is locked to the shaft, and it is what locks the next gear to the shaft. Bikes have engagement dogs with really wide windows so where you might slowly shift the car or truck to allow the synchros to work ... you are better to snap that bike into next gear with a quick positive movement. The difference in design allows one to shift the bike with a quick throw and slack of throttle or even just a momentary blip of the kill button to relax pressure against the dogs to allow a shift.

Yup, a lot easier to dry-shift a bike than a car/truck. Those transmissions the synchronizers will protest, synchronizers get hot and wear out. The bike just goes "KLUNK" and doesn't care much.
