among others, i own a 1964 G15csr Matchless with a right hand shift, one up, three down... ive ridden it for 30yrs and that shift feels so natural compared to the metric shift LH one down four up, you really have to put your brain in gear before you head off...as for driving on the right hand side of the road....thats for you guys have a happy new year

the only reason you and some other country's still drive on the right is - stuck in the past

buck boards were right hand drive and not un like an Indian motorcycle with left throttle - men in general were right handed and the hand operated brake was on the right of the buck board - carriage or stage coach of the era - Indians left throttle was because right hand holsters were all that was being made WW1 and WW2 and some other skirmishes - cant shoot back and get away unless the throttle is on the left
