I've dropped mine several times... that didnt shake me up - being hit by a car did.... even though the chap was really nice and admitted it was his fault. Scared me senseless and i didnt stop shaking for hours!

I suppose its all part of learning....

I wasnt pushing it when i fell off. My bike is really top heavy so at low speeds its a nightmare for falling over - and thats basically what happened each time i fell off (well except for the wet grass fallings off at farmyard a few years back!)

No point pushing things - best to be sensible. I would love to meet the person on the R reg CBR600 that i've followed a couple of times on the way to/from work. He/she has given me a way through the traffic a couple of times since my confidence got knocked.

i was only messing when i said its because im not pushing enough. pushing at your limits is dangerous ...well i think so. ok i lie i fell off my bike once but i wasnt moving so does it count... got my boot caught under the fairing when i went to put the stand down and went over *whistles* luckily the bike landed on the lawn and wasnt damaged and nothing by my pride was hurt

My bikes very light as its only a little aprilia rs125 but its great fun to throw around and i think a very easy bike to ride. although someone with more experiance could probably do a lot more with it. cool its nice to learn and be helped by other riders and most are really good.
