Floating your bike

I was tought when I was really young to float a car, but I had the idea today to learn to float my bike! So I tried it, and I can float it around 5,200 rpm. Is this bad to do on a bike?

FYI- Floating is when the gears on the transmission and engine line up so you can shift w/o having to use a clutch.

My bike is an 05 ZX-6R

Here is the weird part, I can do it at three diffent RPM around 4,800, 5,200 and 6,000 shouldn't it only be once?

Also when I do it the bike jumps a little when I do it in a car it is smooth, when you float does your bike give you a slight jerk?
