Keep your head up, look through the turns where you can, use peripheral vision to scan the road for any obstructions.

As a new rider (took MSF course in early october, got a bike a couple weeks later), I came to that conclusion on day one and it is still my conclusion. I think every rider will tell you the same thing though, no matter how many years or decades under their belt. Every day is a new day with new situations.

Once you believe you know it all, they better have paid you a few million and you better be riding around crying while holding the flag......
