It seemt the season is now open for L platers. This is a good thing but it means that the season is also open for seeing a lot of silly mistakes. The one I'm seeing the most and the one I think is the most dangerous is: Riding in the middle of the lane. DON'T DO IT! That's where you'll pick up old engine oil on you tyres. Oil means no grip, no grip is a bad thing. The center of the lane is also where all the debris accumulates, anything from chunks of wood to used maccas drink cups to bits of metal to remains of a CBR250RR. Ride in either of the wheel tracks of the cars, their tyres clear stuff off the road for you, including ice in winter. Less stuff = more grip, grip is good Also if your to one side of the lane it gives the car behind you somewhere to go if they stuff up, generally they will try to avoid you if they can. My two cents worth.
