I love the suicide shifter on the old Indian bikes.

It was workable 70 years ago, on 2 lane 'highways' and a 45 MPH average traffic speed. In today's world, "suicide" would be an excellent descriptive of their usage.

It was an excellent description even back then. I said i loved that they did that, as in a weird fascination. I myself wouldn't want to use it.
