Keep on doing everything they showed you at your MSF course. Practice a lot and when you feel comfortable enough make a short trip on a main road. See how you do/feel. Then practice some more. Good luck and remember to keep your head up and look where you're going.

Practice what you learned at the MSF course and take your time. Good luck and keep your head up and look where you're going.

(High Five) from another SoCal girl rider! Same scenario for me, class was first riding experience. And yes-20 does feel like a 100 at first! Keep up the steady practice and soon you'll be breaking your first 1,000 miles and the car will be gathering dust. I pop down to San Diego every so often-see you on the road! (Red/Silver)

Grats on the new ride... You will for sure get used to it more and more, just remember to try and stay relaxed, tensing up has it's drawbacks lol... Id be out riding right now if it want for this rain

Enjoy your new bike. Great color I have the same. In fact I bought a tank protector that has the captain american shield on it.
Thanks for the advice, and I hear you loud and clear: I've never ridden it without my helmet (shoei), jacket (joe rocket), over-ankle boots, and hard-knuckled gloves (joe rocket.) I've ordered some kevlar-reinforced jeans, too, which have removable knee pads (girls: cycle gear makes a nice-fitting pair of womens riding jeans.) High-five on the bike color choice, too!
