I have a 4th, the 'Hard Stare', which is 3, but with a glare added...
Relax, sound like you are too tense while riding. Fine a quite area off road and practices talking you hand off the bars and then look over you shoulder. Then once you are used to doing that try looking over your shoulder with both hands on the bars, but mainly steering with the opposite hand. Keep practising until you feel confident.
In addition to the advice above, I also have a good look at the road in front of me before I look behind (potholes, dead animals, etc)
I have a 5th, "The *!@$!!", which is as per your no.4 but with a selected expletive added....
Thanks for all the hints and tips guys I will be giving them a try
I find that the quicker I am going the longer I can look behind me. If I am going slow then only a quick glance is possible before I start to lose control. To which end I have purchased a bar end mirror for the tourer and will soon get a mirror for the hybrid.
