lol actually i was googling and just found your comments clueless for rtrombone about a year ago on the same subject! came on here to post and saw you already commented with the same link.
i like the look but its intresting to hear you (and others i'm reading on the vtx boards) that they are called suicide shifters for a reason. ive read a few others that had one (on different hondas) and had taken them off and were for sale.
so apparently they aren't as practical as they are cool i guess.
