I bought my first motorcycle yesterday, a brand spankin' new '09 Kawasaki Vulcan 500 and I took it out for the first time yesterday. I have driven a stick shift car for years and I understand the whole clutch and shift thing. I can't figure out how to downshift when I slow down. The good news I only fell twice (no serious injury). I don't know anyone who owns one locally. Can someone give me a quick crash course?
