After a few strong gusts when I was in Texas and early on in riding nearly all the time, I started watching for signs in nature a gusty was coming at close a right angle.

The grass moves in a different pattern as do the trees. Then it hits and I lean into it just enough so as to not be caught off guard when the gusts ends.

It takes practice.

Don't react to wind, plan ahead for it. Position nearer centre of lane and depending on direction use it to either help you lean in, or stand the bike up before throttling on

Just be aware of the wind and whats it doing. If it's constantly blowing in one direction then you've got it easy. As @Chris_SVS says position yourself in the center of the lane and that way you've got the most room possible either side. Don't tense up and just go with it.

Every time I got hit by a really really strong gust of wind I try to laugh it off but deep inside I am crapping myself :D but yea leaning into it does help loads as mentioned before.

I remember thinking in the past whilst i was doing 50mph it felt like I was doing double the speed just cause of the damn wind
