today was an interesting day for me. i did my usual loop in adelaide hills for my 150km thrash. i want to state that i dont 'time myself', each time i do this run. i am a cruiser rider and i do just that.....cruise. my normal way of riding is to pick my line, and try and be as smooth as possible while increasing exist speed, while taking into account posted speed limits etc. very rarely will i pass another rider, but i get passed by sport bike riders regularly. but today was different. we (adelaide) had a forecast of strong winds and stronger wind gusts.....big deal. i ridden in strong winds before. but i couldnt get into my cornering rythem. i was fighting the bike all day, and i started to wonder if i was tired, upset, any other reason why i couldnt settle into a rythem. is this normal? do you experience this?
