At this point you should probably wait for it to happen again. Maybe your transmission wasn't fully in gear, it happens.
I've had it stick between 5th & 6th gear sometimes. It hasn't happened since I changed the fluid, but I don't know if it was the cause.

But yes, I would agree about reproducing the problem.

6th gear at 65 mph is about 3.5k rpm, I think (on my GSA). My bike has a "dead" zone at around 4.5k rpm
