So I rode my new bike home yesterday from the dealership. Yamaha sr400. Was pretty excited, and nervous. Managed to stall it twice on the garage forecourt and almost dropped it when I put my foot down in patch of oil, but managed to get some grip and keep it together. Got the better half to follow me home on the 15km ride, just in case anything happened. So what did I learn? Take your time. No rush, people will have to wait. Check where you're stopping and what you're putting your foot in. Make sure the the indicator is cancelled after turning. Most of all, just enjoy the ride. Towards the end the nerves started dissaperaing and I actually had a smile on my face. It all became much easier when I started to relax. Sure this is the case for most people who ride their bike for the first time, just wanted to share my experience. Happy riding everyone.
