Neighborhood is good for practice. Open parking lots work well...got any high schools around your place?

Don't rush it.

Practice practice practice just like everyone says. And the open parking lot will be your best friend, good luck with your MSF also

I don't remember my first ride on the dirt, but it was around when I was 10 or 11. I do, however, vividly remember my first street ride. I was about 20; it was the ride home after buying a KZ650. I had never ridden a streetbike. There I am, cruising like I own the place and up comes my first curve at highway speed. What they say about necessity being the mother of invention is correct. That was the moment in my own little world when I "invented" countersteering... under extreme coercion by a jersey barrier.
