Took a 120 miles ride today. Enjoyed it except on one occasion where the gear was not low enough and the engine went 'rat a tat a tat...' I was thinking that it is coming from the drive shaft, or is it from the gear box?
If it is from the shaft, will it damage it if too much of this happen?
It happened when I was riding quite slowly changing from 5th to 4th and 3rd and then trying to gather speed again.

how slow were you going in 5th gear?
I was slowing down from 5th to 4th and then 3rd. As the road opens up again I tried gathering speed and that was when it happens. At 3rd gear.
