I applaud your taking the initiative to take lessons.
You'll be fine. Just be alert and careful. Spend a lot of time in the dirt at first because it hurts less when you make mistakes.
Plus driving offroad gives you better reactionary skills on road. and will make you not as prone to little anomalies in the movement in the bike such as tank slap or sliding. itll help you out in the long run.
You always think your in control of your bike no matter how fast your going....
Until that split second that your not. and then its all over from there. one second is the difference between life and death.
There are 2 types of riders. those whove crashed and those who havent crashed yet
