Practice, practice, practice. Find a road you know well with obvious marks or objects on the road. Practice dodging them.
I will follow cars on my way to work and when a manhole or drain appears I think left, or right and flick around it. You've got to be pretty sure of your situation before starting that one but you need to know how your wheels will react when the chips are down.
I've also practiced by visualizing a second rock or obstactle next to the target so as to thread the needle. Then you're fixated on the gap, not the object.
