The Versys is my first motorcycle, and the only riding time I had was the few hours from the MSF class. I've made it almost 14,000 miles (1 year, 8 months) with no drops while riding. I will admit though, one time I lost my balance after coming to a stop in a garage and laid the bike down gently. Never goofed that up again.
I think it's very realistic for a new rider to never drop the bike. You have to know and understand your limits, never get carried away by any sense of invincibility on the road, and learn from every mistake or close-call.
