I am so glad I found this site... Maybe someone can help me. I am a total newbie to this.. so far I took a beginners course just to learn about riding and if I thought i could do it. I had a blast but one small mishap.
When I was stopping one time, I accidentally hit the throttle.... scared me but I recovered fine so figured it was a one time thing.
Then I bought myself an S50 Suzuki Boulevard which is a great size bike for me and very easy to handle.. I have only ridden it for a couple of hours in a parking lot so far.. mostly without a hitch. I was getting very comfortable when I went to pull up next to my hubby in the car the same unintentional throttle thing happened... I hit a curb and dropped the bike but was totally fine other than scaring the crap out of myself and my husband.
Now that this has happened twice I am concerned and want to figure out what I am doing and why.. I keep going over it in my mind and can't figure it out. Both times were when I was suppose to be stopping.... which seems weird to me...
I am taking the two day course at our college next weekend, and am determined to be the queen rider of parking lots before i venture onto the road for my and everyone elses safety.
I am determined to be a great/safe rider and if anyone has had this experience and knows what i can do to ensure I don't continue this hazardous move i would be eternally grateful...
