Hi there fellow riders. This is my first post! I just bought my first ever VTR 250 Had my license now for a couple of months but only bought the bike 2 weeks ago. I have been riding the side streets near where I live and also riding to my nearest train station car park to practice slow rides and turns etc. Only today did I really ride on some busier roads and I was fine. Really enjoyed it. However I'm still a little afraid to tackle the busier roads for longer periods. How did (or do) you fellow riders get the confidence to ride your bike? Is it just practice makes perfect? I know it's a broad question but any additional info would be great. Coolio... Norm.
