Sounds like a good plan as long as the driveway is paved
They start you off like that in the MSF course too. At first they just have you sit on the bike and slowly let off the clutch until it starts to move forward. You do that 2 or 3 times then they say you can apply a little gas and then you do that 2 or 3 times. Definitely take it slow at first, and don’t forget to wear a helmet and gloves and boots even if you aren’t going very fast. Chances are if you drop it you will catch yourself with your hands, and if you are unlucky the bike might land on your leg (which is where the boots come in). I personally had my first bike (also a gs500) land on my leg and pin me between the pavement and a bush once when I was trying to back up! Not too much fun, I thank god the bike was a light as it was or else I would have been stuck there for hours!
