Snap!! Find myself doing this quite a bit
Get as far as dipping the clutch and moving the gearlever before realising
And I'm on my second 6 geared car!!
I've even, whilst driving my partners 5 speed Micra at 70ish, tried changing into 6th
Must've scared the crap out of the guy behind as I flashed the reverse lights at him
Most '3 up 3 downs' have a mechanism to stop you going from 5th into reverse, but it doesn't stop you going from 4th or 3rd.
I inadvertently tried to select reverse at 70-ish on the motorway in a rental Focus a few months back. It made a very interesting noise
