Havenít been riding long enough to get any good habits yet.
Just got my MSA on Thursday got my restrictions lifted on Friday AM bought a bike on Friday PM. First bad habit impulse buying.
Now Iíve been out of the parking lot, A couple of times by my self.
Indicators. Yep forgot them a bunch.
Engine braking. Yep. But it works so well.
Remembering to use both brakes.
Making sure Iím looking around to see whatís happening. Iíve mostly been caught out by cars coming up behind me. Iíve been going kind of slow.
Crossed Granville on 16th. Left turning cars ahead, Shoulder checked, saw a car coming quickly up the inside, slowed to let him pass, shoulder checked again. Looked ahead the buggers had stopped. I stopped closer and more quickly than I had planned.
Slowed for road work on 41st. No lines on road crap lan position avoiding man hole covers. Kits SUV squeezed past me any way, first I knew it was there.
I decided to split a little bit of lane. It was just one car then the turn lane. Fortunately I did it slow. Car in front turned right without indicating.
Turning left. I was a bit to far over while waiting. White merc decided to turn left by passing me.
Riding along SW Marine looking far enough ahead, and spotting the pot holes. Spotting the potholes and looking far enough ahead.
Oh yea forgetting the indicators came up a few times.
Covering the clutch yep did this as well, and the front brake, and the back brake,
Forgot to tap down a couple of times. Probably most of the time but only noticed a couple of times.
Stopped the engine by putting the kick stand down twice.
Was to busy to take the bike out on Saturday.
So two short rides on two days worth of errors or bad habits.
Best fun Iíve had by myself in years.
