Casey, one thing about turning, either short sharp turns like from one side of the street to the other, or running down the highway is you have to look forward to where you want to go, say 20-25 feet in a short turn and probably some 60-80 feet in wider highway turns at speed. Now I'm not saying you are not to look down in front of the bike from time to time, but if you look forward and see where you want the bike to go you will have already looked this area over. This way your mind can calculate for you, how much room do I have, speed for the turn, and what to do next, and you will react to what you need to do. If you haven't taken the rider course, you need to and there is an advanced course that will teach you how to do things that you thought you never could, excellent course for both new rides and old.
