I went rolling (not the bike), and the pot hole was where the stop sign was at. I hope I didn't write it too confusing for you guys

Anyways that's how I sorta remember it.
Prob had your arms stiff

So the CC's of the bike isn't exactly the problem. If you can control your wrist you can control the speed of a 600

Agreed, unless you went down under throttle you just need more seat time.

Was it too much throttle in mid turn? You cant just twist on these things like you could on the MSF bikes.

I don't think that I put too much throttle on the bike. I understand that 600SS bikes have very sensitive throttles, but then again that might have been it. I don't remember what I was doing exactly when I turned. I just remember saying oh when I slid and rolling like a rag doll.

I plan on getting back on, but since my dad is the one who helped me pay for this bike he has a say in what I'm going to do with it.

An yea I'm fine, but that must have been rough 1308cc.

you did every thing right.
you took msf
you wore your gear.
I didn't happen to crash while I was learning but many do.
I think it may have to do with your coordination, or your understanding of how to turn.
I never turn into the wrong lane. that's simply not OK to do. And you say you might have leaned too much...that's also very unlikely.

sounds like your bike isn't damaged much, so I would get back on the horse and try again.

cc doesn't mean anything. It's the lack of experience y'all have that is causing you to crash. Keep yourself in check and don't get in over your head.

Fix your bike and get with someone who knows how to ride to give you some tips.

Don't sweat it, man.

Just another statistic, raiding under six months, in a turn and not far from home...

You almost covered all of them for new riders
