Bike shifts with a bang, at low RPMS, so everybody else can notice you ride a man's bike - you don't just shift, you drop the hammer and go.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

It's funny you say this CrossRoads! It's exactly how I feel when I ride my bike! Coming from Japanese bikes and not "really" knowing if I ever got into the next gear (til I released the clutch), I find the "hammer" sound/feel of the Vic to be a huge asset! Heck, my wife even commented how she likes the shifting..Her first words after asking for a ride were "Wow! This is a man's bike!" Hahahaha

Anyway, whenever I read magazine reviews where authors mark off a Vic for clunky shifting, I kind of shake my head--I love the transmission just the way it is!

Happy Turkey Day!

If it really bothers you; you can just stay in first with the clutch pulled in at lights.
Or you can get a POS Harley.
