I have always wondered about my reaction in an emergency situation. I know most inexperience riders would just throw down the hammer in a sticky situation. I know I'm one of them. I have tried to change that and recently I have just finished my P's as well and that gave me practice and it prepared me for what happened to me last nite coming home on my bike. Last night I was on Auburn road(single lane road) heading north (just came off from the freeway). This is when my mind was starting to drift off thinking about something. Then I checked the mirror for cars behind then when I looked up there was a car dead stop infront of me waiting to turn right. It was less than 10m away and I was doing 60kph. I didnt even have the time to say sh!t when my instict took over and swerve out on to the bikelane and passed the car doing 55kph on the bike lane. all I saw was the brake light of the car and the right indicator on(the light still on not flashing when I saw it, must b a split second when I reacted). Now im starting to see the difference between experieneced riderand an inexperienced one. I might have hit the car if I had less experience and if I didnt do the P's course so recently. I know I was stupid not concentrating on the road. But this is probably when all the experience comes in. I just wanted to get this incident out of my head. The image of the back of that car is still floating in my head. Also how close and fast I passed it.
