Riding in the yard (as in on grass?) it may very well slide out from under you. Get out of the yard and to a nice paved lot and practice there.

When tires are cold they have less grip.
Painted lines have less grip.
Metal manhole/sewer covers have less grip.

Outside of that. It will be a LONG time before you lean that bike more than traction allows.

Also remember to lean your body into the turn. (don't just lean the bike)
