You should pick up a set of these for the future (get metric):
Most common size you will need on your bike is 5mm.

How do I install frame sliders?

ummm, so yeah, THANK YOU frame sliders. Dropped my baby twice today while practicing. =(

Practice Day 1: rode 3 miles in my subdivision, no drops, didn't go above 25mph, struggled a little getting him back up the driveway but figured it out.

Practice Day 2 (today): rode 10 miles; got up to ~30-35mph; practiced a little in a parking lot. I didn't drop him until I was about to head back home. Was about to pull out of the parking lot and dropped it when I stopped before pulling out. I think because my wheel wasn't straight when I was coming to the stop.

Try some more tomorrow!

Easy on the front brake. The FZ6 has fantastic 4 pot calipers on the front, and they are a little unforgiving. Grab too much brake and you'll be lying on the ground before you can say "".

BE CAREFUL !!! ATGATT

Dont get discouraged. Keep practicing in safe areas. Are you riding by yourself?

Yeah, I'm by myself. All I do is ride through my subdivision to a parking lot big enough to practice in. It's not far and I only go on a "real" street for less than a block right before the parking lot.

No discouragement here. I gotta learn somehow and it might as well be now.
