That is one cool thing about the shifter on my Road Star. The heel part is sort of small, and almost like a half spoon. I never have an issue finding it, and it is out of the way.cactusjack said:I found it interesting that the author mentioned a gripe I had with my C50T - the fact that my size "baker's dozen" boots wouldn't fit well between the heel and toe shifters. I would unintentionally bump the shifter up a gear with my heel.
That was one thing I was looking at when I was considering the Nomad, and their shift levers are a little more spread out and so far, it hasn't been an issue.
A minor thing, but those Japanese engineers need to think of Americans with big feet.
I liked the heel shifter, I just wish they'd taken bigger feet into account. Not a problem anymore, though.moenko said:CJ, I just adjusted the heel shifter to be situated BELOW the floorboard and never use it - simple fix. I'm not that hot on heel shifting, everything I ever rode on two wheels had toe shifting only.
