Hi all, returning to biking after a “short” 30 year break.  Coming back in style with a new F750😊

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Nice bike to start back on. Are you going to do any refresher training? I suggest it will be an excellent idea to have some. It gives you skills and, more importantly, helps with your confidence, so you get back in the groove quicker.

That’s the plan.  Been doing some refresher stuff with videos and books (best I can do during COVID) and if I can get past the pick up without making a fool of myself, it will be a bit of practice then some proper training.

Welcome to the forum!

Tons of stuff on youtube. I've been binging on ADVMotoSkillZ lately...
As for the fear of falling...learn to love and cherish the experience. You want it. You need it. You can't wait for the next hit.
