New rider lean angle jitters
I'm a new rider. Rode when I was younger, but that was decades ago.
I took the MTC course - and had no issues with lean in the course at all. A few days after the course, purchased a V-Star 950 - which I am thoroughly enjoying. It was on the fist or second day that was making a left turn, and scraped going around. Scared the sh*t out of me. I simply reminded myself that this is just something to be expected with this bike, and moved on. I've scraped a few times since then.
I'm finding that I'm now a bit nervous going around corners - wondering at what angle that scraping noise is going to come at. It's messing with my confidence overall. I know if I could get to the point of knowing when that scrape is going to come, I'll be a lot better off.
I feel like training for this is a bit of a catch-22. Trying to progressively and intentionally increase lean until it happens seems to make sense. The issue is intentionally doing something that I know is going to startle me in traffic doesn't seem like a good idea. On the other hand, the speeds necessary to cause this is greater than is a good idea in parking lots. I do have access to a couple of relatively large lots, but I'm not sure they are quite big enough for this. They are also security patrolled, and I'm not sure they are going to be very welcoming of someone driving through their lots fast enough to cause the scraping.
I'm open to suggestions.
