Trouble getting into first

Hi all,

I have just passed my cbt and have a Suzuki Marauder (06). Went out for a spin today, only second time on the road on my own and had a real problem getting into first, in fact I couldn't! Stalled twice, much to the annoyance of the line of cars behind me, then stalled on busy roundabout junction. I know I haven't got much experience, but I really couldn't find first at all. I haven't a clue what to do (except get it to a garage), but my son has some biking experience, so he could have a look at it maybe. Today was a disaster, and now I'm worrying about the gearbox (I did get a bit p****d off with the bike! I know there are some issues with gear changing on this bike. Please help?
