I remember the lessons at PRS that you have to concentrate on your riding, watch for every pothole, oil patch, predict the action of the car beside/ahed of you and relax; all while you look 20 seconds down the road
The thought that was always in my mind was "I guess I can't look at girls while I'm riding" since the bike goes where you look
Over time though, I have found myself being at one with my bike. Potholes, oil patches and predictions of vehicles are almost automatic. My senses have become vibrant with information from my surroundings.
There is even enough time to take in the scenery + girls as I zoom by (without the bike plowing up the sidewalk).
What do you think about when riding? (poll coming up)..
