The most important aspect of riding a motorcycle is looking ahead. Being able to look ahead, being able to notice what's important, is a vital element of motorcycle riding.

It would seem that that's something everybody is capable of, but you will notice that there is much to learn about looking ahead. You ride towards where you look, so to learn cornering well, you will have to look far ahead, in the direction of the turn. In traffic, you will have to learn to notice far more than you usually see.
