I'm getting comfortable with the controls and my acceleration is ALOT smoother than my first day. I spend about half an hour after work riding then I gotta do other things. I still have trouble starting out from first though. I "think" I'm handling the clutch smoothly with enough throttle but sometimes it takes me 4,5,6 tries to get going. After that, I'm ok. Hey, is it normal to have you left hand cramp up from holding down on the clutch?
