Analyze the turn before you get to it, slow to the right speed, and pick a good line. You shouldnt have a problem if you do this. The worst thing you can do is look at the curb. If you target fixate you might end up going off the side of the road and down a canyon...like I did.
I used to have the same problem. I would always worry that I would miss something on the road right in front of me if I don't take a quick look down. The trick is to study it before you get to the turn. You should look for potholes, curb, debris, etc before you begin the turn. Once you determine your path, then look to the end of that path before you lean into the turn.
It's a little bit disconcerting at first to not look down right in front of you, but if you learn to scan ahead in two stages, you'll get used to it and be perfectly safe.
You also have to learn to "use" your peripheral vision. Just as PaPa was talking about connecting the dots, as you look through to your points, your peripheral vision should be attuned to what's going on in your immediate circle. Just like when you are scanning for hazards on a standard ride, your peripheral is scanning while looking through a turn.
In the MSF class, we were told to look through the turn. We were also told to scan the road certain distances ahead of you. You want to scan far ahead (12 seconds ahead) and you want to pay attention what is right in front of you (2 seconds ahead). I combine all of these to ride through a turn and not hit any hazards.
I found that the "where you look is where you go" to be 100% true. It's like your eyes take control of your hands and you start to adjust the throttle perfectly to maintain a nice curve.
Hi all, apologies in advance for the negative 1st post but i have a 2003 RR which wouldn't start although fuel pump was ok etc just span really fast on the button but wouldn't fire. Turns out cylinders 1 and 4 had 40 psi and 2 and 3 20 psi so engine pretty well toast although was running fine...
a friend of mine was telling me about a electronic visor that can switch from smoked to clear.
i have seen similar idea on airplane windows, they have a lcd i think in between them.
any one know if they are for sale?
also he said he saw one that has daemon eyes on it that are leds, ever see?
