You ask/you answer: How often should I scare myself?

Published: 08 August 2012

When I was learning I enjoyed every minute of riding, but now I've bought myself a Yamaha R6 I've started scaring myself almost every time I go out. I've never fallen off, but I sometimes think I might and when I stop my hands are shaking.

Is this normal? Do other people like it? Being 53 I don't really enjoy being scared and it's putting me off riding. Maybe I'm just not cut out for fast bikes. I'd be grateful for any advice
