She is a new rider with no riding experience. She made some threads before about how her work and home schedule didn't work with the available riding classes in her area. I have a slightly steep driveway. Getting my bike in and out of the driveway was challenging for me even though I took an MSF course. Just like Mils, I didn't even think about getting in and out of the driveway when I bought the bike.Just curious, why cant you ride it up the driveway?
Hi Mils. I think your best bet is trying to get used to the friction zone and walking the bike using a little throttle (while sitting on it). This was one of the first things they taught us at the MSF class. I would just have them deliver your bike at the front of the driveway parallel to the entrance so you'll be on level ground...hopefully. Practice friction zone & throttle control until you feel comfortable enough where you can walk the bike up the driveway.
Slowly let the clutch out without using any throttle until you feel the bike start to move then pull the clutch in. Just kinda rock back and forth. This is what they taught us in the MSF Beginner's Course. When you become comfortable with that, start adding a little throttle but don't let the clutch all the way out. There should be many videos on YouTube that can explain this process better than me.
I know just how you feel with this driveway situation. Good luck! It will get easier.
