Welcome to the Vulcan madness kc.

You say you have layed the bike down 4 times already, with no damage. I assume those were just falling over at a standstill or near to it.
Any chance the 750 is too big as a first bike for you?
Are you big enough and strong enough keep it from falling over when you come to stop, etc.

Trying to ride it like a dirt bike eh?

About 30 odd years ago I borrowed my youngest brothers 650 Honda for 3 weeks to get to work on while I was replacing the engine in my car. There was 4 miles of gravel road to ride once I got out of town. It was ok when dry, but the first trip out on muddy roads was interesting to say the least.

I am a truck driver, and was wearing coveralls and a canvas type parka to ride to work. I think I tipped over half a dozen times in that four miles, but never hurt me or the bike. I did have enough mud and gravel packed between the tires and fenders that it took several minutes with a high volume/pressure water hose to clean it out so I could ride home later.
