Ok I took everyone's advice. I have my class now scheduled. I hope this class gives me the confidence to get on the main roads. I love my new 400 mp3!

Excellent decision! Just 3 words - practice, practice, practice. And don't become dependent on the tilt lock.

Yes, this exactly. Treat the tilt lock as a parking feature until you've got some riding experience.

Like ray states, Practice ! Start at comfortable level and work it. First rule to burn into the brain cells, "LET IT GO". If it starts to fall , and not comfortable to catch, then jump out of the way and let it go. People get injured more not doing this, with slow speed practice. Practice at your own pace, but do push yourself a little bit every other time.
