I took a slow ride around my neighborhood a few weeks ago; first time I've ridden the bike without using earplugs. I was very surprised/disappointed at the amount of driveline clatter while attempting to putter around in 2nd gear. After verifying that all is as it should be - oil levels good, no loose parts/bolts - I settled on this two-step process to resolve the issue:

1) Don't ride without earplugs
2) Don't putter around in 2nd gear 

Problem solved!
