Does anyone else find the transitions between between these different modes of riding something to watch? I've noticed when I take a ride out of town, when I get back to the junctions and roundabouts and general stop/start stuff, I'm clumsier than normal. There seem to be a few things that might play into this: just the physical contrast between the two, being a bit sensorily tired from the ride, and being a novice (so both types of riding still need some concentration on physical control of the bike, which isn't totally automatic yet). A related side-issue is that I wear earplugs for longish rides, but they're a slight detriment when back in the urban setting because I can't hear the motor so well, so I look at the tacho more (one extra thing to pay attention to). I suspect this is really a novice thing, but would be interested in what you guys think.
