Feeling strange while riding?

Its been since last Saturday since I rode and decided I needed to get out and ride this evening. So I took off just for little cruise around the hood and the bike just didn't feel right, nothing felt right about it. I dont think its because it took off for a week but dont know...best way i can describe it is that I just didn't feel comfortable on it today for some reason. Any way so I turned around and came home... Anyone else ever feel like that? Comments?

yeah what ever you do... listen to your gut... when i fell off the bike the other day... i had like the worst feeling and still wanted to ride and eventually fell... so i would say go home or stop and think about it for a few and if you still have that feeling... go home and ride another day

This one time I kept having the feeling I was going to crash. I had that feeling for like a week. But I kept riding and it didn't bother me that much I just took it easy, especially since it was nice weather and all.. So I kind of lose the feeling and I go riding one day up to Tomball and it pours rain non stop, and I crash.

Damnnnn I got owned.
