I always kmow I'm in neutral as I have to pull the bike out of the garage backwards ,so I don't have to play with the clutch. You had me fooled with the sex change and the expression " limp kick".... ;D
Oh Magoo you done it again

No worries mate.  I'd rather be dumb that broken down ;)
Hey, I am guilty of being both at once!

Funny story, was going to look at a friends vespa small frame he was trying to sell.
Having rode alot of vintage scoots I assured him that I knew what I was doing and proceeded to try to start the little beaut. Now keep in mind that the little thing was parked facing a brick wall. When I kicked her over(giving her quite a bit of leg as buddy said had been awhile since she started) I realized that the scoot was still in gear at the exact same time as my head hit the brick wall!  ;D
