    When or perhaps rather where i rode bikes the gear shift was completely different from this . It was all gears down so basically press down for a shift up and go up for a down shift , continue until you reach neutral which sits on top of sequence. Did that for so many years that it has become second nature. Don't know if i can get the hang of this shift mechanism.

    How come these "How to shift gears" videos all start with someone grabbing the clutch with four fingers?

    Don't take advice from this guy.  Holy god.
