Hey everybody. I'm a new rider, never owned a motorcycle until three weeks ago. I took the MSF course and I feel reasonably confident on my 2008 Kingpin. However, I sometimes feel I'm in the wrong gear. I get a lot of chuffing when I shift into higher gears. I also get a lot of pounding noises when I shift sometimes, but not always. Sometimes it's smooth as silk. Any advice? Thanks.
