well i took the bike out of town for the first time today with a buddy. everything is great. im looking ahead, finding the potholes and getting around them. Well we come up to a county highway and stop. My buddy tells me to take the lead and stay on the right side. so i get ready to take off from this stop and i see some gravel in the road. i think to myself, dont try to turn on it and go easy. well i couldnt seem to peel my eyes from it and ended up going 1/2 way into the ditch. i was able to keep control of the bike and stop. just eased it back onto the road and took off ( after killing it once due to my being p'ed at myself). point to my story is that i had a taste of target fixation and am going to try to not EVER do that again.
