Slipping out of gear?
I was taking a nice ride up the coast today and shifted nice and smooth into fourth. About ten seconds later (probably) the bike slipped into third. RPMs shot up. I shifted back up. Rode an hour or so and no further issues. This has happened to me several times, but RIGHT after I shifted. So I didn't think too much of it. There was definitely enough of a delay today that it was in fourth and then slipped. I swear my left leg isn't that weak. Any ideas? Next oil change I'm going Rotella, but I'd appreciate any other thoughts. About 6K miles on the bike and I don't thrash it.
Never really happened to me on another bike that I can recall...
