New to street riding, bike seems so heavy!
honda nighthawk 450
hello, I am just learning to ride on the street, after riding dirt bikes most of my life. I had a yz250 that I rode in the woods. If I layed it over it was no big deal I was able to get it back up. this was 7 years ago. Now I am very excited to learn on on my recently 85 honda nighthawk 450, but the one I have has dropped cafe style bars. I'm a little intimidated. It also feels very heavy to me compared with light dirt bikes. The past owner said it weighs about 440 lbs. I can pretty much sit flat footed on it with boots. I am just worried about laying it over when cornering. it feels so top heavy and the handlebars seem akward. How to get past this fear? I am 5'6" and 170 lbs so I should be able to do this right? I feel like I'm talking myself out of something I was very excited about and not sure what to do. Help!
