Not only your peripheral muscles but also the one between your ears. Riding requires more mental concentration than you'd expect, especially when you're learning. Hang in and enjoy. 'Tis normal:D

And remember to ride with your legs, balls of feet on pegs, and minimal grip on the bars and controls.. just a gentle push of the inside bar for cornering.

The level of alertness a motorcycle rider must maintain is much higher than when when driving a car and the sensory input from all of the senses is much more intense. Riding is more mentally fatiguing.
Agreed!

I just started riding on the street after about 9 years of off road only. That's put me back onto the wrong side of the learning curve. My brain starts to fade after maybe an hour of non very fast back roads riding.

The key for me is to take a break BEFORE my brain slows into the stupid range.

I have ridden on the streets mainly, but as you guys mentioned, I got better and already have around 200 miles in few days:) I took the freeway today and had to concentrate and keep alert, but I love it
