I was reading on one of the many forums I am on, this time on BARF, and not to say anything bad about this particular rider but he posted this and I found it interesting, to say the least:
Source: BARFmotonewbie said:alright I am so angry. I've had my bike for almost a month (been riding for the same amount of time) and I dropped it today for the SIXTH time! Same stupid situation as before (die out with wheel turned on an incline or hill).
What was special about today was that I was going up a steep ass hill and I had to keep looking behind me for my very very newbie friend rider who just got an R6S two days ago. I tried to pull over at the top of the hill and all I remember is kinda struggling to get the wheel to turn back left to straighten it, I didn't pull in the clutch and the bike died out while the wheel was to the right and BAM. I didn't even notice that my mirror was on someone's lawn 10 feet away.
Today was the worse. My bike hit the curb and the bar end took a hit, my mirror broke, and my headlight fairing is cracked and scratched.
I am not worried about the damage because I can ghetto rig everything back together but I am really mad that I keep making the same mistake. It's like one day I'll be having so much fun, perfecting everything I do, then the next day I'll mess up. MY confidence is wearing thin. Besides the MSF course I've ridden my bike about 2-300 miles only.
I use to have a problem with slow speed parking lot manaveur but I've learned how to use clutch control so thats one thing thats good, but I keep losing my balance at these off center wheel stops.
Did anyone have this problem when you first started? PLEASE HELP ME!
