Dug out my motorcycle this weekend. Got it running. Figured I’ll take it for a spin around the block.

Made a turn and stalled. Street was a little up hill. Restarted it and gave it a bit of a rev... little much. Let out clutch. Spun wheel for about half a block. When I let go of the throttle, left hand was pulling harder than right so I turned left and crashed it. Landed bike on my left ankle. Few scrapes on knees and elbow. Ankle hurts like a bitch. Swollen too.

When I recover, I need more practice. Maybe I’ll take ANOTHER Motorcycle safety course.

Any tips for driving a heavy ass cruiser that doesn’t turn very much?
