you and that bike are a recipe for disaster. i also recommend what the other posters have said; get a smaller bike to learn on.
it's not that you don't have self control or are not mature. the bottom line is that, one day, you'll give your bike an input that you didn't intend to give. the bike will do exactly what your actions told it to do and it will do it RIGHT DAMN NOW. generally speaking, a new rider will tend to tense up on the controls at this point, which is exactly the opposite of what should be done.
when you do that on a newbie-friendly bike, you end up with an "oh-shit!" moment and an interesting conversation for your friends. do it on a super sport and you may end up never walking again. or worse.
please heed the advice of the members of this forum. they know what they're talking about...
