Careful when bump starting or avoid altogether.

I was parked on slight down hill paved incline and decided to just bump start rather than to use starter. I may have been in 3rd gear but not sure. The bike just came to violent stop as though I reached end of Exxon Valdez anchor chain. I will probably not bump start on pavement any more and if necessary I will be sure to be in 5th gear. This has got to be hard on tranny.
