A noob question to make you guys roll on the floor and soil your shorts-

-As some of you folks know, I just got a 07 640A. Took it for a spin and I was all smiles. I have ridden in the past, but have never owned a bike. The bike runs flawlessly. But I experienced a little weirdness with the shifter. Obviously user error. But I'm curious. The bike is started and allowed to warm up. Sometimes I have a little difficulty getting the bike into 1st. Not sure, but it appears that if I let the clutch out just a bit, the bike will gently go into 1st and all is fine. Is this normal? Either I read this before, or I dreamed it up. But is there a sweat spot on the clutch? Yes-I cruised through the index. LOL.
