About looking through the turn

Motorcycle lights aim where the chassis or the front wheel point, depending on how/where they are mounted. Where a turn is going is, by definition, somewhere else. This is why riding at night, outside of urbanations, is so dangerous, and feels so creepy; you cannot see through the turn and are just reacting to where you are instead of anticipating where you'll be. You're riding blind.

Well, except maybe a warm desert night under a bright full moon....
