I had a little free time yesterday, and decided to go for a short ride and hit some of my favorite twisty roads. Anyway, I was hitting one road pretty hard, scraping pegs and pipes pretty regularly. I was coming up on a relatively tight right hander when I notice a truck coming around in the opposite lane. No big deal... I usually make it a point to not even glance at these vehicles so I keep looking through the curve. Well, just as I was setting up to enter this corner, the guy in the truck slows to a crawl preparing to make a left turn onto a side street just after the apex (coming from my direction). Like I said, normally, I wouldn't even look at the vehicle, but I had to make sure he wasn't gonna turn in front of me. At this point I'm already leaning over, and it's like I can't take my eyes off his truck. I feel the bike literally getting pulled right toward the guy. Finally I realized what was happening and forced myself to push harder on the right handle. The bike leaned over harder and scraped the pipes, and I was able to force my gaze back to the exit point. By the time I passed the truck, I was maybe 2 feet from the center line. Totally screwed that corner up, but I came out of it without incident. Pucker factor easily a 9 out of 10. That scared me pretty good, and surprised me at how easy it is to get target fixated. Had he not slowed to turn across my lane, it wouldn't have been an issue. All it took was me looking at him to be sure he was waiting for me to pass and I was hooked, literally. It's a scary feeling when you know what's happening, and still can't seem to break the gaze. Ride safe out there. I was lucky this time.... and it would have been all my fault had I wrecked.
