"practice makes perfect, just keep at it. if you fall, you probably wont be that hurt. i have crashed a bunch of times, and you usually only get road rash.<p><br>: was anyone else afraid when they first jumped on a moped? I dunno im a anxious person as it is but going 30miles per hour with nothing around me kinda freeks me out. and it didnt help when i came around a corner and hit a patch of sand and almost fell but luckily iwas able to get my foot planted first..... so any ideas on how to get over the fear besides ""just ride you'll get over it"" cause im gonna keep riding but id like to not be deathly afraid of falling off.<p><br>"
