It might help to inoculate yourself against target fixation: When entering a curve, point your chin (and your eyes) where you want your front wheel to go. If a vehicle in a curve begins to distract you, or startles you, say out loud, "Look there!" ("There" meaning "where you want your front wheel to go.") Saying it out loud helps.
I say this because I believe the flinch is a brief moment of target fixation. As far as the chin thing goes, I read that advice somewhere -- to point your chin where you want to go. Actively moving your head forces you to focus your eyes on your intended path.
