It seems like every now and then there are days when I just should not be in control of a vehicle and should walk around instead. They seem to happen when I'm a bit tired or my mind is on other things and little mistakes start to creep in. It's like my judgement is operating at about 70% instead of 100. This seems to happen for both bike and car, though it's a hell of a lot more scary when on the bike. Last night on the way home from work I nearly made a right hand turn infront of an on-coming car which was pretty stupid. There was no mishap because the car saw me and slowed down and I realised what I was doing and stopped before I crossed its path, but it still scared me. It's probably the first blantantly stupid thing I've done since I've been riding. The trend continued today when riding in along the Easten Freeway and decided to pull into the transit lane a bit too close infront of a Targo, while forgetting to change down gears. The result was that the Tarago came right up my arse, then overtook me in the emergency lane. Not much fun. I think if I make it home tonight I'll leave the bike alone for the weekend while I get my head straight. I've noticed recently that my skills have been improving so I'm now capable of getting myself into trouble, but they haven't improved enough to get me out of it again (if that makes sense). Does anyone else have days like this when they just shouldn't be on the road?
