Transmission Grinding: Am I doing something wrong?

I'm currently running a Koup SX 6 speed and here is my problem. Whenever I do a 3 - 6 shift my transmission grinds, in fact, if I do a 4 - 6 shift, my transmission grinds. So I'm wondering, am I not supposed to be shifting from third to sixth (say accelerating onto the highway then shifting into 6th to cruise)? I was always under the impression that this was okay. Does anybody else's transmission grind when doing this or should I get it checked by the dealer?

This is inaccurate - you should be in the correct gear that the situation calls for.
Agreed. Besides, assuming you are somewhere even remotely close to an appropriate gear for the given speed, I can't imagine it should be grinding between 4th and 6th. Perhaps your clutch/clutch pedal is out of adjustment, or you're not depressing the clutch pedal all the way?
Sound to me like your throw-out bearing is simply not functioning properly at low RPM's. I'd take it in for adjustment or repair.
