I have done the same thing on my '04 VTX 1800R... It's no ghost shift, the damn thing has a neutral spot between 4th and 5th... (and it has made the same clanking sounds you described if you're not careful getting back into gear). I'm usually very careful to ensure a positive shift is made to avoid this, but if it happens I hold the clutch in and make the shift to fifth again!

Even on a 2012 you have to make sure it goes in all the way.

@Wingmaster Shamus.. Nice to see you are roaming around yet. I moved up a few years from my beige '88 that you so kindly led on the Tail of the Dragon years ago.
HaHaHa... I remember y'all! I went to V Twins after that year, VTX/Shadow bikes. No more camping though, (unless you count a cabin). Good to see you too!
