I was really looking forward to a good ride today. The intention was to practice smooth controlled cornering techniques. (In a nut shell, every thing felt so wrong and un natural.) I headed off from Langwarrin with anticipation of a good days ride, into the Dandenongâ€™s, Gembrook, Healesville / Black Spur (two runs) then on to Marysville and home via the Reefton Spur, Olinda, Belgrave and home. So many corners felt un natural and I ran overly wide three times, onto the other side of the road. All three corners were easy left handers? I was lucky that they weren't tight, bumpy and complicated. I could actually see when approaching them in each case that no vehicles were approaching from the opposite direction, my line of sight was un impeded. The surfaces were clean and flat in each case. I really could have been more aggressive to keep the bike within my lane. It was more of the case of f**king up and letting it run wide after the fault. This is probably the major error and a bad thing to allow. If I knew that this was going to be the format of the day; I would have gone home. when I let the bike run wide the first time I pressed on, saying to myself concentrate, look to where I want to go, so on, so on, so on. As the title of the thread states, thatâ€™s how it was for 300 +km and $30.00 of petrol. I should have stayed home. The really sad thing about this (not that the Blk Spur is 80K) is that I was not pushing hard? Itâ€™s time to take stock of all of it and learn from it. I have actually headed off for a rides before and have pulled the pin shortly after just because of not feeling right. Do you have days like this?
