After extended experience on 2 wheels, a lot of riders have a SERIOUS problem getting used to the different geometry and handling of the triangle layout.

Test ride as much as possible before buying......to see which model you really want.

My first couple of rides, I thought the thing was trying to KILL me.
Most people adapt pretty quickly.
It took me a lot longer.

The "wavy" 2 lane roads in most of Florida didn't help matters any.

Welcome, like you my background was 2 wheels, 50 yrs . or so, had to adjust to different steering, and vehicles response to different road surfaces. Took my time drove at a speed that was comfortable.
