This leads me to believe he has not had MSF or any other class. There is no reason you cant use your front brakes in a turn. You just need some seat time and proper instruction.

Welcome to MH.

Listen to what George has to say, he's got some good advice.
MSF, gear, then practice practice practice...

Which class did he recommend, MSF or English Grammar? Holy run ons...

Anyhow, sucks you fell down. Never fun. I dropped my bike the first day I bought it as well, because I thought I would be ok without MSF or anything. Nothing was hurt too bad, and life went on and I learned how to ride properly.

Good luck with everything.
