Finally got my main. Bike back



Got on it, the R doesn't even come close. 2 kicks and purred like a lion.
Front wheels up through 4 gears easily.
I will never let this bike go

Only thing to do here in NJ unfortunately.
I over built it, it has to much power, and it's almost not fun to ride.
But the butterflies in your stomach never go away as the front end continuously lifts through 5th gear and you know there is one more gear

So I may have made a mistake.
I have a neutral down trans.
So my neutral is where 1st normally is and 1-6 are all up.
Well coming into turns or hills and just low speed play riding, I have a tendency to just smash the shifter down.
I've clicked neutral a few times and didn't realize it.
Like I said, it was just play riding but I can see it going bad fast. Especially on a hill or in a panic situation.
Time will tell, but I think I'm going to have to get better at counting my gears
