Sounds like the shifter pawl is broken. This is common in Sportsters. You'll have to pull your primary drive to repair it.
Disconnect your battery, drain the primary, loosen the primary chain adjuster and remove the outer primary cover. Take the engine sprocket nut loose. Remove the snap ring in the clutch assemble and remove the throwout bearing. Remove the mainshaft nut that holds the clutch assembly on. This nut has LEFT HANDED threads. Lift the engine sprocket, primary chain, and the clutch assembly out of the primary case.
Now, you can get to the shifting mechanism and determine what the problem is.

If the bike has been sitting for six months, the fuel that was in the float bowl probably evaporated. When it does this, it leaves behind a gummy substance that is actually the additives that the refineries add to the fuel for various purposes. The problem is that it has probably plugged up the jets in the carb. You need to take the carb off the engine, disassemble it completely, and soak it in professional grade carb cleaner. If you don't have the mechanical knowledge to do this, I'd suggest that you take it to someone that does. If the carb is a stock carb, it's a Keihin butterfly type carb and they can be very finnicky about the float needle setting.

The fuel strainer is on the petcock and is up inside the tank. What does the inside of the carburetor look like? If the plastic strainer on the petcock is gummed up, the carburetor will be as well unless it was drained before it was allowed to sit up.
