so… This morning was my first* wet commute and it didn't go so well. First up - heading down victoria street (Doncaster) and an RACV drive school learner, with instructor, was tailgating me in the wet. Then I slowed down as the road breaks into 2 lanes and they tried to undertake me as the road became narrower and we were coming up on stopped traffic. I didn't like it at all. Rough diagram for reference: fwiw, although the road looks wide enough for 2 lanes each way it isn't, it gets treated as single lane both ways morning and night even during heavy traffic except for the occasional asshole, almost always parked cars narrowing it down. I wouldn't have minded the car trying to pass me on the left if we had of been stationary but we weren't, and that shit is not safe. Shame on you driving instructor. To avoid the situation next time I could ride in the middle of the lane (I was RH wheel track) but I didn't want to do that approaching an intersection in the wet. I can't think of what I could do, suggestions welcome - I'm learning. Fast forward 15 minutes and I come to a sharp right hand bend at the bottom of a hill. It's signposted 30km/h and I usually take it at 50-55 comfortably in the dry. Today, being paranoid about the wet road, I took it at 25km. Front started to wash out the SRs kicked in like never before - right(inside) foot came off the peg to 'save' me if I had have gone down. Rolled off the throttle, ran real wide and almost hit the gutter then a parked car. Somehow didn't eff it up completely but had to shake my head at how stupid I had been. I should have gone slower than I did, shouldn't have leaned off the bike like I did either. Confidence shaken a little. This morning's commute was a learning experience for sure. *First wet ride in years, and on a bike that has more than 4 times the power of my last.
