Nervous to ride in the streets for the first time!!!
I took my MSF a couple months ago and passed. I bought my own bike and now I am nervous to take it out on the road. Is that normal? I want to ride so badly and loved riding in my MSF course but now Im nervous to ride in the streets. I got use to the shifting ( I never drove stick before) but the shifting is still new to me and Im nervous that if I shift the wrong way, etc the bike will jerk. I just want to ride a nice smooth ride...any tips or pointers? I plan on going out at like 5am on the weekends and riding when noone is on the road. What should I do about shifting. Im anticipating surprises in which I will need to react quickly and Im afraid Im might not react so quickly as I am a brand new rider.
