The crux of the matter is this: Whether recognized or not, virtually all rider errors are based on visual malfunctions. Not a malfunction in terms of the body’s survival instincts but, rather, a malfunction in terms of misdirecting the rider’s attention in his bid for cornering conquest. Where do we look to find the source of an error? Most often, one to three seconds before it happened. Recalling the moment, you’ll often find that your eyes went off the rails chasing something irrelevant to your riding needs. Next time you make an error, stop and remember where you were looking and how long you looked there, just prior to the error.
