Nervous to ride on city streets after a few months off
So I bought my first bike at the end of April this year and took my MSF course in June. I loved the course and felt very comfortable on the bike. I came home and started practicing on mine. However about a week later my carbs got all gunked up and my bike was out of commission. Due to the high volume of bikes that are being repaired during the summer it took a month and half for my shop to get the bike back to me. Now I have her back and she's running fine but I'm really scared to go out on city streets. Technically I've never ridden on one aside from the little culdesac I live in. I've been out to practice the basics like shifting and getting comfortable with the friction zone; I'm really nervous to go on the road. Plus I don't think I've ever gone more than 25 mph! All the roads near my house are 45 mph and I don't want to go so slow that I become a danger to me and everyone else. Do you guys have any suggestions on how to get out there?
Also about the speed thing. When I have gone 25 mph I felt like I was moving at mach 5 and that I might just get blown off the bike. I've tried gripping the tank with my knees but I still have that worry. Will I just get used the speed after more practice?
