Dingo, I think it's Baker that makes a netural at the bottom trany conversion (for HDS of course) just for that problem. I would suggest to anyone who is considering this type set up to go ride one first. It's definately not for everyone. I've tried it and apparently I'm not co-orkinated enough to ride one without killing or maiming myself or some innocent bystander!!!!

See that is the other problem I had...I would be afraid that I couldn't get used to it and run someone over

I really don't think I could get used to that. Definatly a cool swap, but I don't think I would like it other than to look at sitting in my garage.
