I have noticed that a lot of new riders have the biggest problem with turns and curves. First off, slow down and take a curve at a pace you feel comfortable with. Keep you eyes level to the horizon so you don't get that "I'm going to fall over" feeling. Turn your head, and look as far through the turn as possible or to where the outside and inside lines of your lane appear to come to a point. The bike will go where you are looking. Slow down before entering the turn, then gradually roll back on the throttle through the turn. Practice, practice, practice and you won't have to think about how to turn every time you need to turn.
Do not watch the road directly in front of your front tire. Doing so reduces your reaction time to zero and you are more likely to over shoot a curve or even lay your bike down.
