MSF prepares you to ride bike in parking lot, not the street. Learn to ride around quiet neighborhoods and get real comfy with the bike and leaning and traffic before you venture into more difficult riding situations.
Sorry about the bike and glad your ok. If it makes ya feel any better I wrecked my first bike the next day after buying it. It wasn't enough to keep my from riding tho!

It happens :eh:

I got overconfident and was zooming around and ran a curve wide, ended up sliding on median, totaled bike and tore myself up a bit.

Sorry I couldn't help you bring it home dude. I just didn't hear from you all day and I made other plans. That sucks you went down, I wish I could have helped you out but at least you are ok. If you need any help working on the bike just let me know, I have a big tool box from when i used to be a mechanic.

Glad that you are all right. Motorcycling is a dangerous hobby/sport. Everyone goes down and if you haven't, it would just matter of when it will happened. You just have to get used to the controls and footwork. Freeway riding is safer than the street. You get to practice shifting up and down and all the moves. On the neighborhood street, there are cars rolling out of driveways and stop sign runner and all the dangers that an unexperience rider would not react fast enough. That's just my opinion.

Glad you got the 1st wreck outta the way. Now , you know how it feels and when your in over your head so dont forget ... Now get back on and learn to ride your own pace.
Glad your ok- some noobs dont get the chance to write about their 1st wreck.
