Practice your quick stops!

On this morning's commute, dark and raining, turning left on to one-way Congress from one-way Louisiana, limited site distance due to construction fence. Met up with a pickup going the wrong way on Congress whos route plan was to turn the wrong way on Louisiana. We met at the corner, admittedly not a "what if" scenario I had played for that location. Bonehead's response was to skid to a stop, putting him right at the apex, like a big POS redneck blockade. I straightened and braked, stopping a couple millimeters from his passenger door. Genius then flips me off and continues the wrong way down Louisiana.

Stay sharp, they really are trying to kill us.

Good story and example.

Any new bike(to me) I get on, the first thing I do after feeling the clutch release point is a hard stop to see how light the levers are.

Always a good thing to practice sporatically especially w colder weather changes. The other thing I do is avoidance practice w man holes on the street
