Any tips for a novice rider on better speed control? When I am following an instructor it is easy enough to pace myself, but when I was leading yesterday, I had a lot of trouble regulating my speed. I was in a 60 zone on an open road. My mind was so focused on changing up through the gears and preparing for the bend in the road that when I glanced at my speedometer I was on 75. I eased off the throttle and then was on 55. I gave a little bit more throttle and was back up to 70! I was in 5th gear the whole time as the bike I was riding seemed comfortable on that. I haven't really gotten the hang of good speed control yet. Any tips to help with this would be great.
