I'm a beginner...
In the process of getting a bike and have found a couple that are 450-500cc. I rode a 250cc in the MSF course and sometimes even that felt a bit too powerful. My instructor approached me during class at one point to tell me to "own the power of the bike." How does one do that, especially when transitioning from riding a 250cc bike for <10 hours in class to riding a 500cc bike in traffic? I was wondering how those of you who are advanced riders learned to own the power of your >400cc bikes.
Thanks for sharing!
