There’s tons of good information our there if you look for it. Here’s a few things to check out if you’re interested.
2) Donald Burger, a Houston attorney, created a blog which chronicles the first 18 months of his motorcycle riding experiences. He rode every day for 18 months and blogged about every single ride. There’s really good observations about mistakes, techniques, and how to really think out there on the road. You can read about it here.
3) As they say, reading is fundamental. There are lots of good books and dvd’s available. My personal favorite is “Proficient Motorcycling” by David L. Hough. I highly recommend it.
Other than that, you seem like your approaching this the right way. Good luck out there on the road!
