I'm not sure if this is on topic, but I'd like to know the answer before it comes a repair question.
I have a Y2K Triumph Speed Triple - great bike. First gear comfortably takes to 90km/h. Needless to say, in city riding I have to short-shift out of first but there seems no point in going to second so I go straight to third by double clicking the changer.
Is there any mechanical downside to doing this?
