Netrider practice paid off big time today!

  1. Very grateful that apart from doing the cones, I always do some emergency braking practice - every Saturday without fail - and today I was ever so glad!

    Riding home, proud of myself for making space, keeping to the speed limit and continual checking. Some sort of festival on in Catani Gardens so the traffic was heavy. Had a bit of a stop start driver in front of me as I rounded the bend, went on alert, screech of tyres and he comes to a rather sudden stop. Some asshole decided at the last minute to stop for a car space and back in with no warning.

    Amazed at how calm I was actually - applied the pressure evenly and firmly, forget the gears, just stop! And I did! Pink elephant stamp for me :) And a huge thank you to the powers looking over me!!!

    So now it's time to get some lunch and collapse - ha ha ha

    Once again, a huge shout out to Netrider folk who give me advice and tips every Saturday - you guys probably saved my precious ass today - thank you!!!
