Only real advice I can forward is keep breathing as people tend to stop breathing when panic sets in and just relax and trust that the bike will do what you ask of it and look ahead instead of just in front of the front wheel.

But most of all dont rush yourself and enjoy the new bike :thumb:

Oh and welcome to the forum
Thanks Rich.

Good to be here everyone seems really helpful and friendly :)

Absolutely take your time and stay well inside your comfort zone . Do not respond to any perceived pressure from other road users and do not build up any speed unless you have already worked out how you could slow down again . Don't worry if it takes all day . Good luck .
