This happened to my partner the first time he rode his 750 (the day after he finished his course). The XG750 is a sprightly little guy and requires a gentle touch on the throttle to start off. I've been riding since I was 8 and it took me by surprise a little the first time I got on my 750.

While my partner's bike was in the shop getting all the damage from his first attempt to ride fixed I suggested he take the course again to get more confident. He went to an actual Harley course and learned on a XG500 (the first course was with a generic school that had him on a Royal Enfield), long story short he came out of the second class a lot more prepared. I took him down to an abandoned street and let him practice for a couple weeks before we tried an actual ride around the neighborhood. He's now a great rider and we've done a few thousand miles worth of riding across the TX Hill Country.

Keep at it. Practice makes perfect. Don't let these little mishaps shake your confidence.
