I went for a quick little ride around the neighborhood the other day and was riding off some small drops and jumping off of curbs...etc. I noticed that every time I jumped and landed, I closed my eyes for an instant.
I tried my best to not do this, kinda like when you sneeze. Is this pretty normal, can anyone keep theirs open?
Try keeping them open and see if they fall out :D

I've never noticed, but I'll try to see if I do it the next time I ride.

Mine close. I think it is your bodies instinct. I am sure I heard that somewhere. I am also sure there are people that fight the urge.

I always keep mine open. I used to have to keep them open while playing football as not to lose track of the ball when getting hit. So I have no prob keeping them open from the hits I take on a bike. I even watch what is happening when I crash.
