Another, you can also help by looking over his shoulder in the direction of a turn or curve. You can tilt your head away from the direction of the turn. Moreover, if you are turning right, tilt your body to the direction but your head must be vertical. This manner will keep you on the look out and will keep you updated of the direction.
