I have been riding for about 7 weeks now and i had my first close call today. I was riding in traffic on my way home from work (my first day back after 2 weeks off so i think i might have been getting used to emptier roads) and i must not have been reading the traffic and staying back far enough. I was in the right hand lane on a 2 lane rd and a car (a few cars up from me) baked suddenly causing the rest of us to break too. I locked up the front wheel briefly but adjusted it pretty quickly (i have done this before but only out of panic when i had first started riding, so i knew how it felt and was not a problem to correct) but then i realised my back wheel was locked as well. so the back started to fishtail a little. I corrected this and slowed down safely without running into the back of the car in front the traffic was still moving slowly and so was i so i started on the throttle again to find my bike has actually stalled and i was just rolling. I popped in the clutch, geared down and started the bike while moving (at about 5 - 10 kph) and started to take off again. right then the car in my left lane changed quickly across mine right in front of me and into the right hand turning lane causing me to lock the front again for a split second. None of this would have happened if i had have read the road better and remembered to keep a further distance than i would in a car. I'm just lucky i learned the lesson without any scars or damaged bike.
