So did the Minitrail I had.

That pattern made so much sense and became so ingrained that I just walked away from the TM 75 my dad was trying to teach me to ride because I refused to put up with what I thought was a stupid shift pattern. I think I gave it all of about 2 minutes before I got fed up.

Still waiting on new petcocks to get the TC120s running. Just rode the TC90 to the hardware store on my lunch break.

I'm going to fix a few more things then put the TC90 up for sale, maybe upgrade to a KLR650. ;)

My Suzuki K11p with an 80cc has a 4 speed with neutral at the top.
