Went for a ride today. After I warmed it up. Pulled in the clutch. Put it in first gear. Nuteral light went off. Let the clutch out and nothing. Wouldn't take off. Had to put it in first again then it worked. Off we went. Is there anything wrong with it?

Sounds like you didn't shift it into 1st gear good. A common issue. Can be also caused by an improperly adjusted shifter or the gears not sliding into place properly. When shifting from neutral to first, often times you feel a very slight clunck, to let you know it's in gear.

If it happens often or comes out of gear, have your tranny serviced.

I also remember in my owners manual reading that it is recommended to rubberband your clutch for about a hour before the first ride of the season as it will release and sticking clutch plates

Many factors such as altitude, temp, humidity, riding style and gearing set up can affect fuel usage, so your mpg may vary from time to time.

Have a look at this thread to get an idea of what to expect.
