CRAP CRAP CRAP

My bikes been working fine for the better part of the last week or so. I had an issue with my bike revving too high for the speed/gear I was in, but it seemed to resolve itself. Now its back and worse. I start it up like normal, sounds good, still have the clutch in, all is good until I release the throttle and start moving in first, it quickly gets louder and higher, like it wants me to change gears all ready. But Im only going 5mph!! I hear the engine whine so I switch to second. The problem persist. Its not until Im in third that it stops, but Im in third going about 15-20mph, my bikes an old honda sl 100, no tach but the spedo has lines for when to shift. 3rd is usually about 25mph+, so I dont know whats going on. I just need to get to work!

Do you still have the clutch in while moving? This sounds like you need to let out on the clutch a little more.
