New KLR650 Owner: Question on shifting speed

Hi, just picked up an 09 klr650, love it. Confused, though, about the owner's manual recommended speed for shifting. Seems they suggest a good speed to shift from first to second is 12 mph, from second to third at about 19, third to fourth at about 24 and 4th to 5th at about 34. I tried it, but nearly stalled each time. Obviously, I shift when it feels right (keeping rpm below 3k), but just wondering if I'm misreading the recommended shifting speed. Thanks
