Yeah, Z can tell you about at least one of his customers who had a
transmission problem that was really his big left toe :)  Not fun to

I put crayon on top of the shifter and finally figured that one out.  Now 
I have an extra bolt in the rearset mounting plate (Attack ... can't recommend 
them) to try to keep my foot away from it.
