You are several thousands of miles away from commuting. You can take this advice or not it is not my bones breaking. First always always remember to look where you want to go. Too many people get fixated on something bad happening in front of them instead of looking for a way to get out of it. Second use those thousands of miles to first understand counter steering and braking. Without understanding counter steering when you start getting sassy and go into that first hot corner you will be worrying more about your underpants than overpants. A local guy bought his first Harley and died on the way home by plunging nearly a 100 feet off an overpass not understanding counter steering. Braking; too many people depend on the rear too much in severe braking. Also understand how to lean into the corners and use the rear to brush a little speed off and stabilize the bike. And one other thing it was mentioned three times before the post you replied to that I had 55 years experience in riding and I can still type and ride.
