Oh a flase neutral! Heavens no! How will we ever shift again?!?!



Guess these folks never rode a DKW....

A "flase" neutral? Curse those fat fingers!



Apparently, the lamp illuminates even when the tranny is not in Neutral.



God forbid anyone launches their bike because the little light told them things were okey-dokey.



They could've made it out to be an added feature: A "Suicide Shift Light," for instance.

Does the tranny go into and out of neutral properly or is the indicator light faulty?

Yes, I hate idiot lights so bad I get all discomboobulated even thinking about them.



Why not have a shift indicator the size of a pie-pate mounted on the handlebars with a sweep second hand informing the rider what gear he's in, what gear is next and what gear he should be in? Maybe mount some idiot lights in it somewhere.

Now wait just a cotton-pickin' minute here. We've already seen any number of pates on or near the handlebars of HD's - sometimes with beanies perched just north of the pie-holes on said pates!



Oh, you meant pie plates. What a smashing idea. But let's specify chrome. And the three analog present, next, and correct gear indicators should be pendulum and chain driven to help attain economies of fuel consumption.



How about including a drag indicator, too? Shifting gears is a whole lot easier when the feet are off the ground and at least somewhere close to the floorboards/pegs.



These ideas could truely enhance the HD experience as they are but natural adjuncts to the potato-potato principle.



bla/bla

I've got an extra neutral between 5th and 6th that I could lend HD.
