Hi everyone

After a three year layoff I finally was able purchase another bike. It feels great to be back on the saddle again. My question for everyone is I always here everyone saying to ride within your limits (which I do) but how do you go about expanding your limits? For instance, I find myself holding back in the twisties because I'm scared I'm going to lose it, how do u get past that and improve?

Suggestions? Comments?

Holding back is good when your new to the area your riding at. Give a few passes so you can see if there is anything unsafe like sand, gravel, debris, etc. Once you feel confertable push it a little more every time you go out for a pass.

Welcome back to riding.
