1. Some of you already know that I'm new and still practicing with my permit on my 1999 GW 1500SE trike . . . I seem to be having a problem shifting from 1st to 2nd - I'm constantly getting hung up in neutral and having to get back to 1st to go to 2nd - I'm told I am doing it wrong. Can someone please tell me then, what I am doing wrong? This especially is a problem when I'm at a stop sign, start to go and can't find 2nd!!!! If there's someone right behind me, I get nervous. What am I doing wrong here? 2. Just had crankshat replaced and I'm hearing a noise I'm not sure about - sometimes, not always, when I'm in a higher gear - 4th or 5th, when I let up on throttle or sometimes downshift, I hear a sound like when I was a kid and put a playing card against my bicycle spokes, only sounds more metallic. Does this sound important enough to have it checked? I don't want to ruin my bike, so any ideas will be well taken. Please forgive me for being so green - I'm trying.
