turn the head
allikanbe was asking if I turn my head, well my first day on the bike, having not been on one for 40 years, I was overwhelmed by the controls, I knew if I could just get it on the freeway and let it roll I could figure out how it worked, same way I learned to fly a helicopter, trial by fire, but yeah, in the beginning I was fumbling with the turn indicator switches and the one that turns them off, so I trusted the mirrors and didn't turn my head, but once I scared the bejesus out of myself and the guy who thought he was about to pass me by trusting the mirrors, I changed my technique in a heartbeat and started looking over my shoulder. Of course now I can't stop, it was snowing last night, so I had to take the Suburban, and found myself twisting around in my seat to look over my shoulder before I made a lane change!
So, since April 6th, the beginning of my motorcycle career, I have evolved, and of course it's a great stretching exercise.
