Hello everyone! I just got my permit 3 days ago, protective gear 2 days ago and my first motorcycle, a 2015 CBR300R yesterday. It all happened so fast, haha. So far so good with learning how to ride it. Also, I will be taking motorcycle safety classes soon.

Welcome aboard from another first time rider.
The Motorcycle Safety Course was fantastic....as is your choice of a first bike.
I couldn't be happier with mine.
Enjoy!

Welcome, and I can understand on things happening very fast and all of a sudden you're already in the moment... Can be a great feeling if you can manage and pace with it.

Btw, you know you can use the "Multi-Quote" button to quote everyone within one post... Not that I blame you on racking up that post count though...

:D

Haha, so that's what that button was there for. I'll keep that in mind next time though. :D

Welcome to the forums source! Glad to see you were wise enough to get your permit and gear first before the bike. Not enough people do this. I also can't recommend the safety classes enough. My experience was a lot of fun in addition to being very helpful. Ride safe!

bear in mind that everything,, you do with your bike
will influence how you control and manage it..
check out motogp mechanics in the garage
picking up moto3 bikes [250 singles]
and turning around 180deg to then
walk them into their garage etc..

point being control of the motorcycle,,
even when stationary of moving it around..

all such movements, which you do every time
you approach, move, mount, stop, hop off
park etc, contact your balance mechanisms
and muscles used for these tasks..
'just' moving your motorcycle forward
and back, just arcing it around a little
forward and back, is excellent practice
which you can do without ever
getting onto it..

when you are on the bike there are heaps of things
you can do, even without turning the engine on..
moving forward and back, using energy thru bars
and feet [etc], prepares for jobs you will do,
when parking and moving your motorcycle..
there is no limit to this..
it involves and includes use of brakes
[or handbrake when off and pushing etc]

all of which become those first movements
under power, using clutch and throttle
for control, learning, control,
even when only moving forward under
engine power a few inches..
then feet, at a time..

when you begin this way it will all fall into place,
and you will know what needs to be done next..

just saying, there is a world of preparatory
and other simple practice you can - and should -
do, even before starting out on the roads..

the better prepared you are of the roads
and for any safety or other rider courses
you can do, the better the outcomes
will be..
