You'd think they'd have a clue...
So you are saying that a visual gear indicator, mounted down on the clocks, will help prevent you from being further distracted, and pay better attention to traffic?
I'm thinking maybe getting a better feel for the machine will help you do that. If you are having to think about the gears and the clutch, you just need to ride more, think less, it'll get more intuitive
I don't shift up or down to a light, I shift when the bike needs it. 1st has an obvious feel, and you will know you are in 6th because you will be going really fast, and there won't be any gears left.
I'm also thinking Triumph designers def have a clue.
