This is only natural for you are a newbie trying to learn on one of the fastest trotting bikes in the market. Go back to your first request & not those that have your a lot of warning or what as a more sensible bike to learn on.
Once you have, sort of dominated, the clutch & throttle problem a LOT more will turn up to give you trouble & good chance you will be landing on the pavement with your ear.
I have 61 yrs of riding experience (been in the m/c business on & off for some 40 yrs) so I have delt with a lot of people like you. Even on one make/model of m/c, the 1000cc V-twin Vincent HRD, WE would only sell it to well experienced riders that road sensible & we felt would handle the Vincent well though often we would not sell to some with just a few yrs of experience & were sort of radical riders or riders we knew this bike was to much.
Mind you one of out customers with a used 500cc OHV single road some miles to another city to buy the same bike. Just as he was getting out of the city, I guess he turned up the throttle to much to loose the control & ended up in the ditch, on the opposit side of the road, with a compound leg fracture & some internal injuries.
He never rode after that & here is the doozer for the 500cc he had was with around 25hp at the crank & the Vincent HRD 1000 he purchased only had 49hp so a lot more then his 500cc yet a 500cc parallel twin such as from Suzy or Kawasaki now has around 50hp & your 1000cc is purnching out around 150hp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
