    mine does this all the time, between 1 and 2.

    i was told "its a 20 year old bike, get over it"

    one of my dads old bikes had neutral between almost every gear lol

    worn out selector fork/dogs so it jumps out of engagement.

    the gearbox needs a reco.

    Yep, basics first.

    Were you wearing a different pair of shoes or boots?

    Is your gear lever set up in your ideal position?

    Are you sure your foot didn't have slight pressure on the lever?

    When was your last oil change?

    If the bike has done heaps of km's or has had a hard life, no doubt this can happen, however 90% of the time it's minor issues such as those stated above.

    jumping to neutral's not so harmful, because there is a place there, it still wears a bit off the dogs, but doesn't bend shift forks,
    check the cutout on the gear lever isn't hitting the peg bracket and preventing it from going fully into gear,
    1st to 2nd is a longer jump than other gears, allow more time for the gear to go in before reapplying power
