Get to know people, find someone in your area and find places to ride that don't have tons of traffic! Make sure you have all necessary gear to protect yourself and the biggest part of learning is becoming confident on the bike. Getting to know it in the parking lot is a really great way to get a feel for the bike and getting to know it, but when you get on the streets with all of the distracted cagers, it is a whole new world. Welcome aboard, when and where do you plan to ride? Do you have friends that ride also?
