Had a wake up reminder this morning on the way to work. 1,000 curses on the early shifts. Apparently some people see no need to leash their dogs at 6:45 am because that dog wil never run onto the road at the bright green buzzy thing. As i am overtaking a car on the right most lane on a three lane road, Goodwood road south of Cross road for those playing at home, a big happy yellow lab charged across from the left taking myself and the car by surprise. I am very happy that i was not late for work, a firm squeeze on the brakes and flick from the hips to jump the bike over to the left hand wheel track and a good squirt got me away like the pro I sometimes pretend to be. Just something to remember, the unexpected will happen at the worst possible time. At least it wasn't mid-corner. Stay safe.
