2018 Kawasaki NINJA 650 ABS KRT
So, um, here's what happened: I had just exited my gravel driveway onto the hard surface farm road. I'll admit, I was not in the best mood. I made the 90 degree curve onto which my driveway exits, gunned it on the straight, went to shift into second and hit neutral instead. Before I could roll off and squeeze the clutch lever to get to second, the transmission snapped back down into first. I won't swear to it, but it seemed like my hands got a little higher and I somehow twacked my left thumb a little (My right is pretty used to it; seems it gets twacked every crash 😊 ). I wouldn't say that it felt scary, but it definitely wasn't normal and it got my attention. Could my front wheel have caught air for a brief moment during that unexpected downshift--and can I claim to have done my first wheelie?????
