I think 1000 miles is a pretty big turning point for most. Somewhere around 750 miles a light bulb went on over my head and I started doing alot more things right. Not really scared of it much any more. It's a very stable and predictable device if used within it's limits (and mine). About the only thing that freaks me out is wind like you get if a storm is approaching. Unpredictable pushes this way and that at highway speeds can be very disconcerting.
you'll get used to that also with a few more miles under your belt.
the only way i can describe it, its like your upper body feels the wind before the bike and you just kinda shift against it.
it still moves you though lol
