New Rider

Hi everyone I have been riding in the street for 3 years in a Vespa and now switching to the 250 ninja. I see it as a progressive step to track riding on bigger bikes. My goals here are to learn how to shift and learn properly and naturally. If anybody has website links or videos please post them to me. I just want to be a good rider and practice practice practice.
Thanks

Take the MSF course. I had never even on a bike and after the two day course I can ride, turn, and shift gear. It's a great course and will give you confidence in your riding ability.

Ya I'm thinking of doing it again I did it a few years ago but now after having a bike I have so many questions. Like I know how to ride but I want to be pro. I only ride on city roads so I'm not sure if I don't have enough speed to lean or not. With shifting, I try to shift up and have revs 500rpm below what they are and when shifting down 500rpm above. I let it out kinda slow but see other people dripping the clutch in their shifts and want to know how fast it should be done. I also want to know how to do it based on sound so I don't have to think so much.

There's always the advanced riding course and track days to go to.
