So a couple of times now I've overcompensated with throttle on hill start because I am afraid of stalling and ended up doing an unintentional wheelie, nothing huge though. Today was easily the worst; I had filtered to the front of a set of a traffic lights (heaps of room) but the light went green sooner than I was expecting so I freaked out a bit and got the wheel up high enough it scared the shit out of me and I came down crooked. I almost came off but somehow managed to get it stable again. I did notice after coming home though that the gear shifter was a bit bent outwards (the opposite direction than you'd get from a drop) and the only thing I can think of is that I've hit it with my leg but it's hard to remember everything, it all happened really fast. From now on I will not be filtering at lights where I'll need to do a hill start until I am way more comfortable with controlling a bike but I really need some advice on taking off from a hill start without being too slow or stalling. I realise I probably dropped the clutch way too quick due to the panic of knowing cars were behind me, but any advice would be great. Also I should mention I ride a GPX250 so I am very glad I didn't get anything bigger to learn on. It's just all really frustrating because in every other area I can see clear improvement in my skills every time I ride.
