Why do motorcycles (at least all the ones I have owned and ridden) have the gearing 1 down and 4 (or 5) up with neutral between 1 and 2? Why not neutral on the bottom and then up in sequential order? Wouldn't that make it easier?

I am sure there is a right and quick answer, but it is one I do not know.

Just kidding, I've wondered it myself. Thanks for the explanation.
