Take your time on that bike as it has more power than you'll have skill as a beginner

You're absolutely right! That's why I've taken precautions.

Finishing up a training course this weekend on 250s to learn the correct way the first time. I also bought a full set of good gear (used) to help keep safe and warm.

I was able to go out for a short ride the other day and, because of my skill level, I just take it easy.

I've also been able to surround myself with others that won't egg me on to do something beyond my skill level which is very important I believe.

I've only been on a bike for a short time but I already love it and want to make sure I can continue for a long time!

Cheers from B.C.

Way to go for you Darren, looks like you are in good phase. I'm keeping things up to start my basic rider course and hopefully to ride soon.
