The shift action of the five-speed Confederate gearbox is quite positive, swapping ratios smoothly except from second to first, when there’s a clunk each time you go through neutral while shifting down.

This is a great bike for close quarters traffic combat, using the S&S engine’s meaty response to zap past cars or trucks as you carve your way past them in a very Latin fashion.The wheels also help in driving. The front is thinner to allow greater control over the bike. The rear is thicker, to apply on the surface all the power and strength of the motorcycle.
