Haven't been riding long, 3 months. Now that the weather is getting better I have been riding alot...bike odo has 700 miles, looking forward to 1k so per yamaha its "broken in" Had an fz07 before but quickly traded for an 09. So on corners Im scared to death, as soon as I start to lean I can just mentally visualize gravel in the 2nd position at the apex causing me to slow down (not break) just feather off the throttle, and worst yet get fixated on the road in front of me going through a corner which is bad shit...they dump gravel/sand on the roads here during winter and I've almost wanted to park the ****ing bike on the side of the road to actually see If there's any there. I've even had cars tailgate me which is embarrassing as ****. When I calm down and look through the corner it's all so much easier, but then that voice in my head "hey ******* your a newbie and all it takes is a small pile and low side your punk ass and your new bike into a mountain. Even a 35mph corner...I'm doing 30. For roads I've been on I'll stretch that way out..of course its black top and can easily see if there's gravel in between. All my riding up to now has been straight stretches, minor corners on highways. But moved to a new town and it's full of "twisties'. Is this normal? And with experience will the fear get replaced with confidence? It's all but consuming, I've even been really sweet to my wife before a ride because I'm going to the twisties...and she may have to feed me through a straw and wipe my ass...after ya boi hits gravel lmao!.
