Well im going tommorw to pick up bike! Took the training class over the weekend, and learn alot. Im glad I did that, well worth the money. Im excited and nervous all at the same time. I just hope i can get it out of the lot and on the highway with no trouble. I learned alot from riding those honda rebels in the training class, but the fury is alittle bit bigger! keeping my fingers crossed!

Gratz on the class and take a new born pick of that fury when you first get her... lol... Just take it easy on the roads and make sure to watch out for obvious things like gravel and water... Other than that, happy ridding to you!

:cool:

I did the same thing. Went to the rider class then picked up my Fury. I have been licensed for a few years but didn't ride on a bike for about two of them. The rider course was a great decision. One thing to remember, those little rebels are crap. Your Fury will turn sharper, accelerate faster and brake better. Overall the Fury is by far a better bike. Size means nothing, the exact same fundamentals apply to any bike so don't be too nervous. I have noticed as my confidence rises, my actions are smoother. Just don't over ride the bike. Take you time through turns and always remember "Shiny Side up." Ride safe and congrats on the purchase.

Congrats and like everyone has said, just start out slow until you have a feel for the handling. You’ll love your new bike for sure.

Exactly what I would advise. Go slow and easy at first. You should develop a comfortable level of confidence fairly quickly. Going slow at first will allow more room for any error correction. Enjoy your Fury!

Funy story. About a month after I got my bike I went to an intermidiate class here in Tucson. In class that day was the most obnoxious student an instructor could ever hope for. Apparently this guy was a motorcycle drag racer and he kept interrupting the instructors and adding his 2 cents every chance he could. I can tell the two instructors were getting annoyed with this guy (I know I was) but remained corteous and professional. Before I get too deep into the story, let me add he was in class with his father-in-law both riding BMW GS bikes. Anyways, here we are doing wide curve exercise (starting in the outside, then in at the apex and then back out to exit the curve), we were running two groups at the same time. All of the sudden, all the stars decided to align themselves and both of this geniouses went down at the same time!!!!! Normally I would not have laughed at another rider, especially in that environment, gut this guy was such a smart butt that everyone laughed right on cue. End result one broken wrist (the drag race superstar). Superstar and his father-in-law left class for the hospital with a busted ego and a lot of cool points down the drain. Made my day.

Try to ride between 10am and 2pm during the week and early Saturday and Sunday mornings. There is alot less traffic at those times. Confidence comes with miles and as someone here on this forum quotes " Ride within your means" Always pay attention and you'll begin to enjoy your new ride...
