I thought I'd share the following. I did a bit of riding yesterday (took the bike instead of the cage) and found myself being lazy with braking on one occasion. I partially got up myself for that because I know from when I taught myself to play the guitar it can be hard to unlearn bad habits. Here's what happened. A car started slowing in front of me for no apparent reason. I rolled off the throttle and only needed to brake very lightly for a short time to maintain a 2-3 second gap. I used two fingers! I realised why that was bad as I would have been screwed if I needed to emergency brake at that time. Before that and afterwards, it was four fingers on the brake lever regardless of how hard I had to brake. I obviously had a brain fade when I did the wrong thing. The moral of the story: keep thinking about what you're doing (I wasn't quite doing that) and try not to pick up bad habits because they're more difficult to unlearn than to pick up.
