You take off in 1st gear at a fairly good rate and then pop into second only to discover that you "missed" it and it slipped into neutral....then, thinking you are in 2nd..you rev the engine and then it dawns on you. "you MISSED 2nd dumb ass!"

Now there are people viewing first hand your "nice move" and then you take it one step further and pull the clutch in and delibritly rev the engine to make it "seem" like you "tried" to do that.........PUTZ

Rossi's got nothing on me when I pull this move!

You ride while drunk, you got more balls than me. I like my skin too much. That has not happened to me in a while. I only did it in the begining.

Happened a couple of times when I first got my riding boots and after switching to synthetic the bike shifted really smooth.

Never had much trouble with second...mine is most picky on the 5th-6th transition when i'm cruising. I do have a good one though (hope someone can relate). I have this tendency to drop my wrists down at low speeds, and when I make a tight, slow, turn I'll pinch one between the bar and the tank. :boob This most commonly results in a 2 mph tank slapping adventure, me looking like a flailing idiot, and it's sure to be witnessed by no fewer than 10 people.

**After about three bottles of Ketel One, penfold becomes a bit careless on his R6**


BTW, used to happen to me all the time.
