Your advice on position in the lane prior to turning is what I was missing when I was a novice (after a couple of years I now feel that I have moved from novice to beginner). This kept tripping me up. It seemed intuitive to be far right in the right lane for a right turn or far left in the left lane for a left turn. But intuition can be wrong! I had looked at a dozen videos and websites but yours was the first to discuss position in the lane prior to a turn. I think that being far right in the left lane for a left turn or far left in the right lane for a right turn allows the turn to begin immediately and thereby hit the spot in the turn as intended. Thanks for the essay. It helped!

If she still can't make a u-turn after 10 years, she has no business riding. People like her endanger the rest of us riders.

It's funny some assume because they can start it and move forward they know what they're doing. Same for car drivers. You need to know how to make u-turns, left and right turns, reverse, (with your feet on most bikes), parking in tight areas.

On a bike you need to be aware of all traffic around and in front of you at all times, and expect the unexpected, and have quick reflexes.

I bought my first bike last year—a 2008 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Classic. I completed the Harley-Davidson Riding Academy two Aprils ago as a refresher course even though I have a license already. But it's been since the early 1980s I last rode. Being 52 and getting back in the saddle again was definitely a challenge but I was totally up to it.

I passed the riding course with a good score but I put my foot down and lost points doing figure-eights in the box and other slow maneuvers. I now ride two-up with my wife and plan on taking the next level riding course that covers this more using your own bike. (FYI, I have Jerry "Motorman" Paladino's Ride Like a Pro CDs on my Christmas wish list this year.) Thanks for the tips and keep the shiny side up and the rubber side down.

I need all the advice that I can get. I learned a lot from the clip "wide turns." I still have fear of riding alone. My son and I would ride together, but things have changed and I want to start riding again. I want to meet more riders. But the fear is still there to ride alone. Any advice would be very helpful. Thank you.
