Bought my first bike, just painted my rims

Got my 1st bike. 2000 ex250 f-14 ninja 250r. Paid $650 for it + my $526 bill from the shop I took it to. Got the carbs & gas tank rebuilt/cleaned. New air filter, oil filter, oil changed. Rode it for the first time 2 days ago. (DROPPED IT ALREADY.) Trying to turn right at a stop sign, hit gravel and squeezed my front brakes. Since my handle bars were turned completely right, I fell sideways fml. My bike is Midnight blue w/ silver flakes, and it had purple rims. (barney purple) so I painted them yesterday. I'll post pics of the damage I did dropping it & b4/after or the rims. I'm taking my permit test Tuesday then scheduling my MSF course. But I'm 100% open to any help I can get. Advise? Remarks? I wish I could ride as good as I paint Lmfao!

I chipped the corner of the upper front fairing and put a couple scratches on the side could hav been worse. Especially if I was moving faster than 1.5mph lol

No advise for the test to be honest other than have fun and don't be afraid to go a little out of your comfort zone when practicing for the test. Not too far, but doing so a little bit will help you to understand that you're more in control than you think you are. It's easy to feel like the bike's in control when you're first starting out, but don't worry, it gets much easier

as for the fall, that's why it's a beginner's bike! These bikes are tough though. I think every EX250 has a chip on it like that, mine does and so does anyone else's that I know of that has one. You can always wet sand the spot and paint it if it bothers you too much.

The rims look nice! Good luck on the MSF course

I appreciate it. And I'm trying to just get the feel of the bike still. I've ridden dirt bikes a lot, but I'm slowly learning there's no comparison. The earliest opening for the MSF is over a month away and about 80 miles away. So I hav time to practice a little bit at home and in my neighborhood. Thanks for the feedback.

Nice bike bro & don't be afraid of the skills test honestly I bought my bike last Thursday I got my permit Friday and I passed my test today. So all honesty just be confident. Also quick question, why get your permit and still take the safety course?
