New Rider Help
So while I'm deployed I purchased a 2013 Super Glide Custom as my first motorcycle. I decided to go all out for my first bike instead of buying a new one a few months later. I’m 6ft tall and 180lbs so figured I could handle this sat on a couple bike before I left and liked them. So my plan is to take the Riders Edge Course since Affess is paying for the course and then take the Army Basic Riders course to meet requirements on the Army side of the house. I don't plan on leaving my neighborhood probably for the first month or two practicing turning, breaking, and other stuff as well. I had a "Crash Bar” Engine Guard added on just to be "SAFER" when I drop the bike. So my question do you guys have any things/courses you practice we have some abandon roads and big cul-de-sacs to practice in about 5 blocks from my house. I would like to ride about 1 to 2hrs a day to get up to speed so any information on setups/equipment would be nice. I'm getting a full face helmet, Harley leather with armor, leather gloves and boots and Kevlar reinforced jeans pants, neon yellow vest (Army required).
