Time for my first embaressing newb question. I've read that you shouldn't upshift when turning corners due to the chances of the back wheel skidding. Okay. There are times when I'm turning right when taking off from either traffic lights or a stop sign. There's a car behind me and seeing the L plate, they decide to help me by sitting right up my arse and give me sweaty palms. I'm riding a 250. Do I stay in first gear all the way through the turn? If it's a wide street I'm turning into, sometimes I find I really need to shift. Basically I want to know what I can do to get around that turn faster without revving hell out of the bike.
