Hello everyone, I am new to the world of motorcycles. I have however spent the last 5 years driving old beat-up manual truck and a lot of time biking around by my own power. Sadly, my truck is dying and needed a new form of transportation. So I just purchased a CB300F after reading a lot on this forum. And today I took it on my first ride and spending the whole day riding around. So far got 50 miles. Looking back I don't know why I didn't buy a motorcycle sooner.

welcome,, good news is that balance and coordination and certain
fitness based on similar ergonomics are transferable to your honda..

road riding a pushy is an excellent viewpoint for the road environment
especially for single track vehicles, the potential 4 wheel predators..
even driving the truck will add at least some road sense..

just like learning to ride a pushy, learning to ride your honda
will depend on how much and to what levels you practice,
as in dedicated personal practice,, somewhere quiet
away from predators, where you can safely go thru
your braking drills, slow riding, circling/figure 8'ing
and anything else you feel can be improved
or enhanced.. [which is basically everything]..

the intellect is fine and useful in planning etc,
but its the doing of it, rationally and regularly
that does the trick..

with your attitude of appreciating your honda,
practicing is not only easy but rewarding
and enjoyable..

next thing get good comfortable riding gear..
then, with an eye on the predators,
enjoy your low flying...

I don't know if it's the bike, or the scenery that does it for me.
But I do know I like both the speedy rides, as the comfortable, laid back rides, with everglades as background!

Hot choice. I like your way of keeping it simple and frugal. Judging from your prior habits, looks like motorcycling and you will get along just fine.

Welcome!

Thanks everyone. I have been keeping up with the practice as well as finding good back road to the places I need to go. Just broke 200 miles on the bike and have more gear on the way. Not looking forward to the rain but hope it stays nice till my rain gear shows up.

Welcome pris, just remember if driving in the wet to take things nice and steady, allow plenty of time for slowing down also nice and smooth when cornering. Also slippy roads when wet. Enjoy your bike :)
