Ha I remember when I first got mine - taking little short trips around the block before I got my ID. Man I couldn't wait to go faster and go farther.

Hey, I just got my vn700 Sunday and have put at least 100 miles on it. You need to have that bike checked out if it's pulling to the left. It sounds like the forks aren't square. It also could be you trying to get used to a bigger bike( it took me a few days to figure it out). Good luck on getting your license.
