is this possible??
This is probably just me, but I thought I'd ask anyway...I'm riding along (just started about a month ago), and I'm feeling pretty confident...due to my newbieness I've tried to stay at speeds below 80km/hr and have stayed mostly on residential streets. I arrive on a clean, empty back road away from the residential area and decide to twist the throttle a little more, hit highway speed, just to get used to the feeling. now because I' m a newbie I still suck at keeping track of what gear I'm in. I shift up, twist the throttle a little bit, and the engine revs loudly, but I go nowhere (same thing that happens when you accidently shift into neutral). Is it possible to...i don't know, overshift on a bike???? it sounds stupid, I know. When I gear down I usually just tap until the shifter doesn't go down anymore, then I know for sure I'm in first...I figured it would be the same for shifting up, but I could be wrong...??? I don't figure it's possible to shift into neutral between 5th and 6th gear, so I'm thinking it's just my newbieness kicking in. This ever happened to anyone?
