Your favourite gear, and why?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by aerodynamic, Feb 26, 2009.

  1. wether it be racing, twisties or just cruising around town, Whats your favourite gear, and why?

    Mine would have to be 3rd. I love the acceleration it brings from 2nd, and the speed it brings from 4th...but thats my little 250 :D

    What about you?
  2. Reverse. I like the extra challenge.
  3. Ohhhhhhhhhh, gear as in gear! :rofl:

    NOT as in clothing gear! :oops:

    Hehehe!! :p

    Well in that case, my fav gears are 3rd and 4th because,
    as a noobie, I still enjoy puddling around btwn 60-80k/hr :grin:
  4. sixth :p
    because traction felt less there
  5. 3rd, being on a postie it's fine from 40 - 70 while putting about town :)
  6. 3rd or 4th.... for the best power wheelies...i was about to say my SP2 gloves lol
  7. Alpinestars SMX Plus Boots & 3rd
  8. Depends if I put my left or right glove on first.
  9. 2nd - good from 0 through to 150kmhr
  10. +1. Nice transition from legal to illegal.
  11. 2nd is fun.

    It's my "Overtaking f***wits" gear.

    ... surprised I haven't worn it out, riding in Sydney and all :eek:
  12. ....Gears 1,2,3,4 - full throttle between 8 and 12K. :)
  13. Favourite gear on the 250, putting at 80, 6th. Favourite on the 1000, 5th at 80. Favourite for scaring cagers - 2nd.
  14. 2nd and 3rd. :)
  15. Helmet, hides my face. (most of it anyway)
  16. Power Wheelies in 3rd & 4th what you riding there mate? a rocket!

    My fav gear would be all of them, but most fun without a dout would have to be first. I've changed my gearing so i have some really serious pull out of the corners and off the mark.
  17. love my summer gloves, tried to ride without any gloves the other day and it didnt feel right, and winter gloves dont have much feeling.

    All gears 1-6 are great, what I dont like is a false neutral between the gears at freeway speed not funny
  18. +1
    I'm with You
  19. There's always one GREEDY person in every crowd :roll:
  20. same. and my right hand glove.. actualy both gloves are the only things that havnt caused any greif.
    this is about clothing isnt it :?
