Got to take out my baby today.
first time I really got to take it out, and already put like 60 miles on it.
Im a little sore, but had a fucking blast.
Thanks to my mom's friend, and im going out tomorrow too.
The only thing that im having trouble with is starting, other than that,
I think im doing alright.

I had the stalling problem in the beginning. Remember to give it some gas as you let out the clutch.

Yup, and the engine is only engine noise, nothing's gonna happen until you release the clutch.... so rev the engine to a steady RPM, and let the clutch out gradually (you'll be burning the clutch easier) but you'll take off smoother, at first

never drove a stick before I take it.... it's the same just different devices.

I just let the clutch out till I feel it start to catch then give it a little gas and then ease out the clutch and gas till it's fully out. Careful not to give it too much gas and not to release the clutch too quick or you will wheelie and possibly have the bike go out from under you. Had that happen once when I was 1st learning to ride... LOL

Hey Kev, this is a great site to ask for advice. I just got my bike and was so excited and then the nerves kicked it, but I finally got on the bike and rode and it is a blast. 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!
