Greetings

Hi Everyone,
Just bought a new 2019 Honda Rebel on Monday. I'm a new rider and this is my first bike and I love it. Now I need to ride it so I can get used to it and used to riding at all. I'll take any tips you have for me 😁
Thank you and be safe!

1. Take a motorcycle safety course if you haven't already.

2. Buy this book and read it all twice https://www.amazon.com/Proficient-Mo.../dp/1889540536

I did take the MSS course which was great. Just feel like I need more practice to feel more comfortable in real traffic.

@drakon Watch YouTube videos. I recommend motojitsu . Start here
. Also by Mcrider . Start here
. I watched almost all their videos. How to stop safely and not fall. Watch this
. This helped me at stop signs . More control. Hope this helped.

@drakon Most single rider accidents happen in curves. Watch videos how to cornering by motojitsu.
