MSF?
might wanna take it, it could save your life.

target fixation is basically, you GO where you LOOK. your in a corner to hot, you look at the tree's.......thats where you go VS looking at the exit off the corner, where you should be going. its an instinct that has to be overcome by training and practice. look where you want to go!

dont think it was target fixation, i was on a straight road, no curves or hills, it just happened, but nice try though, i just come to terms that i can guess all i want but ill never know why, and i took the Motorcycle saftey course...twice and ive been riding since i was about 12, so i have practice and enough experince, so that wasnt it either

why? to prevent others from making the same mistake and learning from yours........thats why. as a motorcyclist you HAVE to learn otherwise you keep making the same mistakes, and after enough the mistakes will catch up to you.

maybe your lesson learned will help others think about decisions they make while riding.

yes, it's a chapter in your life.

as for "all she wrote" is in reference to the actualy accident.

and yes i'm hard headed, ask the wife........lol

naw, that would be common sense.

back to my target fixation lesson, you can fixate on oncoming vehicles as well, it's not only in corners..........

well, as a motorcycle inst. i look into what causes accidents.

you can say........ it was what it was........and i lived and so on. and thats understandable. your trying to get your life back in some order.

well, i look and say, what caused it, and what can be done to prevent it, so i can use "you" as an example, so my students can learn from it.

"sorry you are the way you are i guess" same in return.
