It doesn't seem like a very good idea if it's for any longer. Neutral doesn't have anything going on with it, put I would not advise it being in drive.

I would put it in Neutral, hit the kill switch, then ride it out until you are ready, then start the engine, and back to drive.
I'm not sure what you meant about the part I underlined.

And no, I wasn't in neutral for most of the coast; I only set it to N for the restart as it won't start in drive.

The sound happened when I restarted it on the occasions I did this EOCing, Not while I had it in drive while gliding.

And I don't have a kill switch for it at the moment.
