Interesting day today. Been motorbiking and commuting for about 9 months, and driving very defensively to account for high levels of cager idiocy. And sh*t happens all the time, but today was the worst I've had so far. Two stupid maneuvers adding up to more than the sum of their parts. Two lanes, I'm in right lane. Guy in left lane cuts in front of me to get around a slower vehicle, then immediately brakes to a complete stop. No idea why. Waits a few seconds while looking around ("where am I going?") and starts up again. Because he cut me up I was much closer to him than would've been if following; as a result I did my first ever "proper" e-brake. And it went well. \\/ I'll adjust my riding to account for even higher levels of idiocy in future. Anyway, other than yanking my own chain, I wanted to say: if you are a learner in Victoria you should get down to St Kilda on Saturday and do e-braking practice with Hawklord et al., and then do more practice after that. It saved me today.
