Look Through the Turn

by Dawn
(Athens, OH)

This probably seems like one of the most obvious rules, but I somehow missed it. I rode my motorcycle for a year before taking the Rider's Edge course, where I learned the proper technique. Before the class, I had the bad habit of looking at the road through turns to make sure I didn't run over anything or hit gravel. My instructor explained the need to look where you want to go (ahead in the turn) to make smooth turns. I had a "duh" moment, realizing that I should have been doing this all along. Since the course, my speed has doubled in the turns, and my confidence has increased.

I spent last weekend doing the MSP course and had no idea that there was a technique to make turning so much easier! Looking through the turn makes riding so much more fun and I don't feel like I am going to fall. It even makes dirt biking easier. I passed the class and got my license. Now I am ready for a cruiser. I have a dirt bike and a dual sport. Time to get something shiny and low.

Happy riding!
