Music? Caffeine? How Do You Stay Focused While Riding a Motorcycle?

You ask, the community answers. It's Ask RideApart. This week: How do you stay focused while riding your motorcycle?

From Melbourne, Australia, reader Nick asks: "I've just read Jon Langtson's article about staying alert on long rides which prompted me to ask the question: How do other people prepare for a fast ride through the twisties?

"How do you sharpen your mind and focus on the task at hand? Do you listen to music or prefer to listen to the bike? What are the biggest distractions to you when trying to ride at speed around corners?"

What tricks do you use to get and stay focused? How do you stay focused on riding your motorcycle without letting your mind wander?
