One thing I've noticed is that it doesn't seem to turn in all that well but I've been riding a Ninja 250 recently and a KLR before that so I'm sure it will take some getting used to.

You can stop worrying about whether you paid too much for it or not. You did.
That won't prevent it from becoming a great ride (though maybe not a great looking ride).

The turn-in issue will probably go away with new rubber.
Some tire profiles are worse than others in combination with front spring rates and inflation pressures, especially as the tire wears.
What's on there now? Try a different brand next time.
