If you take the Harley Riders Edge Course the first thing you are going to do is learn to duck walk the bike without the motor even running. After you master that you start the engine and still duck walk the bike for quite a while before you ever put the bike in gear. You should be able to do that in front of your home or in your driveway. Good Luck and go slow.....
We started out on the bike, engine off, walking the bike back and forth across the parking lot. Probably did that 3 or 4 times.
Then we started the bikes and learned the clutch... ease out just until it starts to pull forward a step or two, then squeeze it back in and walk it backwards a couple steps. Spent about 5 minutes or so doing this.
Then back and forth across again several times, feet still down, but feathering the clutch to pull us along.
Then trips back and forth getting just enough speed to actually ride in 1st gear.
Then we rode laps around the perimeter of the lot, in first gear still, to show how to turn the bike at low speeds (turn the direction you want to go). Then turned around and rode the other direction for several laps.
Then more laps, but in 2nd gear, fast enough that the turns now required countersteering to lean into the turn, and again back the other direction.
And that was pretty much the entire first hour on the bike.
