The power of learned behaviour....
35 years ago I had a Suzuki 120 which I rode to University in Sydney for a year. I didn't ride again seriously until the year 2000. The old 120 had 4 gears, 4 down (I can't remember which side, I think the left).
Ever since I've been riding the LT, I will quite often change up by tapping the gears down i.e. intend to go from 2->3 and 3->4 and instead actually go 3->2 or 4->3.
I can only put that down to old habits. With nearly 100k on the LT, I presume it will be soon that the new memory pattern overrides the old!
