I've found this to be the best - and most difficult - thing to do. Reactions or more specifically overreactions during little slides turn them into bigger slides or highsides.

Nice saves, though. I'd like to know what Marco did or didn't do.

Note to self, my options; order more Kevlar.... order extra underpants... Easier solution..order gay bike that doesn't make me ride like that. Hmmm, f*ck that, "brown" underpants and Kevlar on the way!

I agree, it is hard to do. It's like not falling into target fixation. I think what saved me at the time was my reading of Keith Code. He always preached that a bike can do just fine on it's own.

+1 Night Train. Keith Code's book was an amazing read and is highly recommended, even for seasoned riders. Survival reactions are instinctive which is why they're so hard to combat against or ignore.

Which way did they go? How many were there? I must find them - I am their leader
