Lots of panels around the shifter shaft and lever . May be worth a close look with it on the center stand and with engine off rocking the rear wheel and shifting by hand slowy into 1 st to check for binding. But you should get it fixed soon . Jumping out of gear can round off or break shifter dogs, and it puts a lot of pressure on parts that will not like the stress. I have had customers when I worked on bikes come in and their shift drum . couple of forks , and gears had to be replaced when early models ( GL 1000 ) started doing this.

The old wing is now a bobber tank shift faired road monster Just look here if you don\'t believe me
