About Rocks…

Riding motorcycles can be dangerous.   Especially when riding through a rocky section of trail.

When I rode motorcycles (a long time ago), I was always amazed at the way certain riders were able to go through rocky sections so quickly, while others struggled just to survive.

Ask anyone who can fly through rocky sections how they do it, and you will usually get this answer:  Focus on where you want to go, and don’t look at the rocks.

An amazing thing happens if you focus on the rocks.  You inevitably run into them.

The same thing happens with potholes.  The surest way to hit a pothole is to focus on it.

We all have rocks (or potholes) in our path.  They will always be there.  The best way to avoid them is to resist the temptation to look.
