A CB175 is a much lighter and shorter bike, the VT700 will be totally different to ride.
Do a lot of low speed practice in a parking lot (figure 8's, low speed straight line riding (using rear brake to stabilize), tight circles etc) to get used to the different handling of it.
When you go to a larger, different style bike, there is a bigger learning curve, especially if you have only ridden one bike ever.
After a few years and a few bikes, you will get used to different bikes quickly.
I notice a difference going between my brothers '95 883 and my VT1100. Primarily in weight and heavier steering in my 1100, but also since my 1100 has a car tire in the rear, the 883 seems more "tippy" to me now as well. Even with that, within 2-3 minutes of riding, I have adjusted.
good idea, the school is a mile up the road with a big parking lot empty on weekends, just need a couple of nice days to practice.
yeah, that second video is voodoo magic or something.
Motorman has a lot of good videos online to get some practice ideas. Friction zone, rear brake and look where you want to go are 3 great tips that really work well.
I was amazed at the simple tip of look where you want to go instead of where you are going was.
Made my low speed handling improve greatly. You will naturally go where your looking.
I have been debating doing one of his courses locally, but until then, I do at least a weekly low speed driving practice for 5-10 minutes or so in an empty parking lot.
Here is an example of one of mine on my way to work one Saturday morning:
