this is my first street bike got the 300 se abs, had a dirt bike 25-30 years ago (yea i'm old). rode 20 miles today would've rode more but the cold got to me (cold and windy). still learning to lean with the bike ( it's starting to come back) so far i'm very impressed with the bike. a lot different than the dirt bikes I remember. did all the rookie mistakes. almost dropped it in the driveway, target fixation in the first turn (got that fixed before anything happened) stalled it, didn't adjust the mirrors before I took off ( thank god for a gas station that is close by) wanting to put my foot down like a dirt bike in the turns. just going to ride near the house till I get use to it. taking baby steps. the good part is I didn't get freaked out when meeting cars or have them behind me so I have hope.
