Welcome to the forum IMB. Continue practicing your low speed manouvers until you can drag your pegs in a full circle going both directions. To see why, go to www.ridelikeapro.com
. I suggest getting the "Ride Like a Pro V" DVD, and practice the exercises he outlines for you.
There is info available in some good books too, which will help you stay healthy and in one piece if you read and apply it. One which I just picked up is "Proficient Motorcycling 2" by David Hough. One thing he recommends is learning to use the front brake properly, which means for every stop and slowing for every turn. If you are going to ride at 30, 60 or 90 mph, you need to know how to stop in the shortest distance possible from that speed while retaining control of the bike. So you put on your best crash gear and find an empty road or parking lot to practice on, starting at 18-20 mph.
Enjoy the ride and remember that when on a mc, the journey is the destination. Get in a good frame of mind before getting on your bike. If you are tired, sick, hungry, cold or angry, put it off untill you feel better or settle down. Us newbies have to watch out for each other. We won`t live long enough to make all the mistakes ourselves, so we have to learn from the mistakes of others. Come back often to share an experience or ask a question. It`s all good.
