jockey shift 2 Years, 2 Months ago  
A friend of mine got me real cool beer pull, and now i'm thinking of doing a jockey shift, and using it for the top. I can't recall if this has been discussed, but any input,suggestions, or advice would be appreciated.

That looks very cool. I would like to see the behind the leg set up.

I was looking at those. I am really curious about the set up.
I'd like to see an actual install. I rode an late '90s Indian that had a behind the leg style hand shift rigged up and it wasn't too bad to ride.

Wow! After checking this out, I want it! That is so cool. Definitely a way to set your r* apart from the rest. Very cool, and at what I feel is a reasonable price too.

Re:jockey shift 2 Years, 2 Months ago  
I really love the look of the shifter and all...I just don't know if it would get annoying after a while, or I would get used to it.

My biggest concern is it seems like it'd be a pain to come to a complete stop and be able to put both feet down, unless you put it in nuetral everytime. That seems like it would get a little aggrivating.

If it wernt for this I'd seriously consider one.
