Keep an eye out for children running out into the street after balls that get away from them!!!

I had that happen to me today - saw a ball rolling into the street infront of me - luckly I think it was a teen that was using it and they had the good judgement to not chase after it.

It's the old trucker's rule:

Where there's a ball, there's a child.

Thanks for the reminder.

I actually had that happen to me a couple of weeks ago. The kid looked to be about 4 or 5 and sure enough he came right out after the ball. I guess he didn't hear the motorcycle engine. His brother/older-friend was even pointing at me and yelling something that I couldn't hear through the helmet. I could see it coming and was able to slow down in plenty of time. I always expect and plan for that kind of thing to happen in a residential area. Over the last 20+ years of driving that has happened a couple of times. I was just surprised that it happened to me within the first couple weeks of riding a motorcycle. Good reminder.
