Take the MSF course. Take it to a parking lot and practice for the time being. Don't give up.
Okay, this sucks. I am not an advocate of the RR as a first bike but no use crying over spilled milk. What's done is done. What you are experiencing is normal. I didn't get back on a bike for several months after my first get off and even then it was only in the "[email protected]#k this I have to do it" manner. Here's what I suggest. Park the RR in the corner of the garage and go take the MSF course on their bike. Honda will kick the $$ back to you afterward. Then, have a friend you trust and who has some experience riding spend some time with you in a parking lot where you can practice accelerating, braking, leaning, etc. as well as all of these things in emergency situations. They should be able to offer some suggestions and point out areas where you need to improve. After that, take it out on short easy rides. Pay attention to what you're thinking and feeling. If you make a mistake, identify it and try to correct it. Take it slow. If you really want to do this, you'll have plenty of time down the road to have fun. Learn to be safe first. The fun will come. I hope you stick with and learn from your mistakes. This sport comes easy to some and much harder to others. We all learn on a different curve. If my mom could learn to ride a bigass, heavy Harley you can surely learn to manage the RR. Take it slow, ride safe and smile.jrdenney said:Ok here's the deal a bought a brand new 2003 600RR of the show room floor about a month and a half ago. Well this is my first bike ever. I have never rode a bike in my life. Well I get the bike home and take it out. All went well I had a blast. The next morning I hit some gravel and went down. No biggy got back up and went to work. Well a couple of days later a I grabed to much front break and went over again. By now I was getting a litle scared of the bike. About couple of weeks ago I was on my way home and stopped at the stop sign. The rode was uneven so I didnt get my feet planted very well and feel over.
I don't know what to do. I cannot seem to get my self back on my bike. I feel that if i take it out again I wil dump it. Can anyone please give me some suggestions.
Each time that I have laid it over it has had nothing to do with skill.
