Why not set the endurance bike up for both ways? The LSTD bikes have been for years.

European bikes come all with GP shift? Did I read that correct?

I have to agree with you on the latter though .

Hmm .. you couldn't be more wrong with that

The only "european" country where people drive on the left side is Ireland (unless you really wanna count the UK to Europe, in that case it would be the other). Other than that everybody else drives on the right side. Also do bikes have a regular shift pattern like every other bike here, unless you wanna count Rossis bike a standard because it's in Europe .

So people in Europe run into the same issues as you when they want to change their shift pattern to reverse or they just buy a Suzuki

I could be wrong, but that only happens once in a while, I never asked you to come pose in here and talk about suzuki's i happen to own one. Either you can offer some advice on how to get my honda to gp shift with out having the hose tie wrapped to the frame or quit polluting the air wih your garbage!

As I said earlier, they don't. Bikes in Europe shift the same way like they do here. Like standard cars shift the same way they do over here and all cars except in the UK and Ireland have the steering wheel on the left side like here.

you know what, even though thats a quick fix and works.
what would of being better was some safety wire threaded through a small hose so it would not cut through.
i only say that BC i have seen zip ties just break out of no where...if you dont catch it then youll put a hole on hose and get black flagged at best.IMO
