How do I work on overcoming my fear of getting back on my motorcycle? I laid it down and cracked my tibia.?

I was only going about 20 mph, but the road was wet since I had gotten caught in the rain, and the bike slid out from underneath me. 3 months ago I went off a curve and broke my hand. Both times I was out alone, without my husband. I've been riding for a year.

Yeah I actually had checked the weather radar and on this day they were WRONG!

Yeah I actually had checked the weather radar and on this day they were WRONG! Someone tell me more about the difference in the front/rear brakes please. In the class they said 70% braking power comes from the front, and using too much rear can lock up your rear wheel. Should I brake differently in various road conditions?
