I have been riding for a while and have completed a couple of advanced rider courses, although still have much to learn. One thing I do is think about possible scenarios, have a planned response, and practice that where possible. Two particular scenarios trouble me. I don't know what I would do, and hence would like to hear from some of you highly skilled riders (not an opinion from a newbie). What would you do in the following situations: 1: a car pulls out in front of you from a side road in an 80k zone (eg rural type setting) so you have a bit of speed on. Assumption is you have seen him and prepared for the possibility, perhaps backed off a little on the speed, done a weave or flicked lights to show him you are there. Appears to have seen you, since staying stationary, but then suddenly pulls out, leaving little time to respond. What action would you take at that time (eg emergency brake, and counter steer behind-or is that too complex?). Where would you be looking (on the basis that the bike will go there)? 2: you are out in the twisties going into a right hand sweeping bend (ie you already have some lean on) and an approaching rider takes his corner wide and is on a collision course with you. You have a split second to respond. What would you do, and/or what would you have been thinking as you approached (eg do elite riders consider and prepare for possibilities like this)?
