BobA is pretty much correct.
The easiest option is probably to utilize the unused LEG16 on the PICAXE18M2 and have it put out a high (or on) voltage when the bike is in 6th gear. That way you could just unplug the PICAXE18M2 from the rig you built and plug in the newly programmed one. Wire an LED to LEG16 with a simple 330 Ohm resistor in series and you would be good to go.
BobA's suggestion of logic gates (AND gate) would also work, but would require adding a chip, wiring in power for it, etc. Certainly not difficult, but the new PICAXE18M2 route is cleaner, easier, faster.
