That sounds like an uncomfortable fart at work

I just let it rip... the clutch and farts.

But the previous advice regarding setting the engine speed at a steady RPM and easing the clutch out ("slipping" the clutch) is sound. Remember that you can always engage (squeeze) the clutch if you feel like you have too much/too little throttle. Slipping a motorcycle clutch is perfectly fine, unlike a car.

Hey Kev, if it makes you feel any better, we all still stall our bikes now and again.

Your not alone even though I rode before I am still having problems with starting its getting better and I practice and practice and practice. Like Gunit said it will come to you. Once I get going I am fine until I have to stop and then I start thinking OH SHIT I have to start again WTF but your get over that as I am and it will be fine.

Like everyone here has told me, "Ride your own ride" have fun and be safe!

That is exactly what im thinking, thats probably why I stall it, maybe if I dont think to hard I won't stall it.

That's what I am learning to, just DO IT!!!! Don't think it. We tend to overthink and we need to just do it. My whole thing is OH SHIT now I have to hurry and get moving again and the cars are behind me and I don't want to look stupid but hey even the best damn riders out there have been in our shoes. Practice and practice and we will get it.

Shit all this talk I think I am going to ride tonight.......

dont worry man, its all good. take your time get to know your rpm's and the sound of the motor. it will tell you if it doesnt have enough throttle, before it stalls!
