you know, We kind of see the same thing, when people get into a pickup we had, that has that "granny" first gear... you just touch the throttle with any engine while in granny 1st, the truck freaking lurches.

Our trials bikes are geared this way, so being aware, and telling your test rider what is going to happen, and how to save themselves, saves silly crashes...

Just sayin....
I was like on my first stand up ride on a low geared trail bike, not as bad on the trials bike because I got the talk from a friend, so.. yes I will be giving him the this is what will happen talk. LOL
