Question about 2002 Suzuki VS 800 Intruder
Hard to tell if you are just starting to ride motorcycles or if you haven't driven in a long time.
You have to learn to be confident on your motorcycle, and learn to feel comfortable while driving it. I would reccomend to practise driving it on roads with very little traffic, so you could get used to driving it, start by getting used to the acceleration, then get used to the counter-steering.
When you are used to both the acceleration and the steering/counter-steering, you should get used to accelerating (not too much) while driving in curves, and letting go of the throttle while driving in curves (don't release it quickly, but to give less power to the wheels so it slows down).
You could aswell drive along a road, where there is NO traffic, and drive forward and from one side to another, just like practising countersteering.
The most important one, as I think, is to master to drive in certain speeds, DO NOT drive faster than you feel comfortable with! And do not drive past the speedlimit, unless there is clear sight and no traffic (and especially no cops ;) ) But I repeat, DO NOT drive faster than you feel comfortable with, even if you are driving with others, never drive faster than you feel comfortable with, that might cause a crash, that could even be deadly.
If none of this helps for your confidence, you should actually just go for it, and drive, don't drive too fast in the start, and don't do hard accelerations. :)
Sincerly, your fellow mc-brother :)
