I have a 2006 VTX 1800c. Just bought it two months ago. Kinda a noob when it comes to bikes. I was riding today and came to a red light. I put the bike into neutral to check saddle bags. I know I know a big no no. When the light turned green, I could not get it into first. Tried to pull it up into second nothing, just stayed in neutral. This is the second or third time this has happened. I have put over 1200 miles on it so far and no other problems. I just want to know what I need to check. Thanks.

Mine does that periodically too. I think I read somewhere on this board to release the clutch lever and pull it again, then try 1st gear. That works for me every time. Good luck.

clean and grease the foot shifter and its linkage.. very common problem.. do this at every oil change.

the shifting assembly is a ratchet and if the linkage or foot petal is dirty or tight it will NOT return to center.. preventing a gear change.
