I try not to run over anything at speed.  Below 30, I'll sometimes aim for water puddles just to see some spray.  ;D

I'm pretty good at avoiding alligator strips.  Squirrels, birds, roadkill ... not so much.  :o

Nope. I've proven more than once that I don't have a DS. OK, the occasional cone...  ???

Riding over 2x4s is part of the MSF course. I have been known to practice hopping curbs. I know, most of you don't need that. But my bikes are usually low enough that I have to practice to be sure they have enough clearance.

Do you guys ever run over stuff just for practice?

What are you practicing for? Monster Jam? Trials? Americas Most Wanted? Changing tubes?

More along the lines of gravel in curves, sticks, leaves.  I do it in the hope that if I ever don't see it coming, I might get through it on reflex/muscle memory without having a heart attack.  :)

Probably still have a heart attack but the more aware of the road you are the better off you'll be on having a positive reaction. I don't know if practice makes perfect works in those situations. It's usually luck for me.

Sorry, It was a poorly worded question....vague.  I only meant sneaky road hazards....not cinder blocks and school busses.
