Yes, I did the basic rider course 2 weeks ago. The biggest difference with this bike though is the center of gravity I believe. We had Nighthawks in the course. I could easily flatfoot both sides (and actually bend my knees which was uncomfortable). The U-turn practice was comparatively much easier on those.
I've gotten much better at not staring at the ground - bicycle riding has accelerated this process. I'm planning to take the advanced course. The instructor suggested getting about 5K miles experience beforehand.
