Sitting here bored shitless on a non-working day. I'm doing time working in the States Mid West. Just heard the resident small Kawasaki twin leave the apartment building. Loud as always.

But it's the way he handles the gearbox and clutch that made me laugh once again. Everybody drives automatics here. Many folks actually believe that there should be a slide-down in engine RPM as they release the clutch after changing up. Offensive to my ears. I can understand it when I hear that done in manual box (stick shift) cars - often - they just don't know any better, but deliberately trying to make a bike change gear like an auto box?

You heard it here first. Remember that when you begin to hear it in the UK... and weep.
