Got my bike today! Have some questions on riding . . .
I got my new Honda F4i today and took it easy around my neighborhood to get used to it as it was the first time I've ever been on a sportsbike. The ride went very well and I put about 10 miles on it. The first thing I noticed is that I was putting my weight on my arms over and over again. I'd ease it off as I noticed it and then go right back to doing it again. I know this will take some time, conditioning and practice.
Now the one thing that happened that kind of got my attention very fast was my legs felt like they were cramping and locking at the upper thigh and hip. I pulled over and put my legs down to let them relax, but this was no big deal as I was riding in my community. Now what concerned me is if this happens on the road and my legs actually do lock up. That's kind of scary. I know I'm stretching them in ways that they are not used to stretching. Is this pretty normal for a beginner rider and how long does it take to get past it. It seems like it could be dangerous.
