Hey guys my names Stephan, I'm from Sydney and I just purchased my first bike, a 2014 Ninja 300. The bike is being delivered tomorrow and I'm super nervous/anxious/excited. I'll be using it for weekend fun and a bit of commuting when I'm more confident. I've never ridden before except at the prelearner course I did about two weeks ago when I got my license. I drive a manual car so the concept of gear changing was easy but I struggled with using the rear brake in slow manouvering, just felt really weird. And I was a bit wobbly lol. I'm pretty nervous about getting the bike tomorrow, I was really pumped for it but it just started raining and the forecast says its raining all weekend. The day I did the prelearners was clear and I'm a bit anxious about the tyres being brand new. I know I should of gotten a used bike or a naked for my first but I indulged a little. I really wanted to just practise around my area but its raining and I'm not sure if the first day I take it out I should risk riding in the wet lol. I've read all of the stickies in this section rigourisly but am still pretty nervous. What did you guys think? Should I risk taking it out or wait for better weather? I know I'll drop it some day its just a matter of when but I don't want it to be on the first day hahaha. How long did it generally take you guys before you got confident riding on bigger busier roads in traffic? Also this isn't really bike related but does anyone know why icant use tapatalk? says I have to speak to a mod?
