I've come to really appreciate Pridmore's mantra of smoothness. Unfortunately, as much as I aspire to smoothness, I just can't manage it in the morning. Before the cocktail of stimulants I've come to regard as part of my standard operating environment have percolated their way through my nervous system, my riding is generally jerky, coarse and clumsy. I'm not a morning person, but I'd really like to address this as both a safety issue and an annoyance, and about half my daily travel is done in this sad state. On the way home, when I'm more alert, I feel I'm far less likely to come unstuck, largely because I'm much smoother with my control inputs. Does anyone else have the same problem? Any tips on how to overcome this?
