A Little History of Little History
Time ago, long time ago, way before many of you even considered a two wheels I took a group of newly found friends to a European ride covering several border crossings.
One evening, well into the ride, we were discussing about the experience and two elements came out from most of them.
AWARENESS BRINGS CONCENTRATION & FOCUS
Concentration (to bring or direct toward a common centre or objective) is the process of focusing on the task at hand. Knowledge of what we are capable of doing and situational awareness sustain concentration as the primary mental tool for doing anything good, including biking.
It is possible, stupid, popular and not advisable to drive a four wheels vehicle while chatting with passengers, phoning, contemplating the panorama, eating, dreaming and planning the time ahead that, maybe, will never come. More delicate and balanced activities, like riding a motorcycle, demand total concentration. At any speed, a momentary distraction on the bike may easily carry a very high price tag attached.
