Tonight I remembered there is a difference between cars and bikes. It's a bit wet and greasy here in sydney tonight and I was transporting a car load of youth group kids. Coming to an intersection that has a corner that I have been known to enjoy occasionally and set up for it, making note of the wet road and set my entrance speed. Next thing I notice is massive understeer and straight lining at a gutter. What I forgot is there were five people in the car, not one. It's amazing how much the dynamics of a light car change with an extra 200-250 odd kilo's. Don't panic, you'll be fine, keep the throttle on and keep steering in, you'll be around in a jiffy. Yeh, doesn't work. About a foot and a half from the gutter with foot depressed and almost full lock my brain kicks into gear. "YOU'RE GONNA CRASH!!" Jump right off the throttle and the tyres grip with a ferocity that put the back end out (similar to Vettel on the weekend - but I didn't lose it because I have better car control than him), straightened up and continued. Have not had many closer calls than that. There are many areas in which riding has helped my driving tremendously, particularly with hazard perception, but I found out tonight that a combination of riding conditioning and not much driving has negatively affected my driving to the point where it almost resulted in a seriously bent axle and possibly worse. Don't neglect your driving skill set folks.
