Nice today and my Icon field armor vest came in, so I decided to take a ride out to Bayside to pick up my stuff. On the way home, I was coming down No.1 road (yay Richmond) in the left lane going ~60km/h. Up ahead, on a cross street, I see a Corolla trying to turn left. I'm the first vehicle approaching, so I'm thinking he sees me. But as PRS told me, they don't see you. I get closer, and I make eye contact (or so I thought) so he definitely sees me. Then, the guy turns. With only 3 weeks of riding (~400km experience) I of course panic and squeeze the brakes hard. I hear *screech* my front brake locks (and I'm thinking "oh fuck me", and magically (I'm going to say it's b/c PRS taught me this) I automatically release the brakes and reapply. I think the sound of my front brakes finally got the drivers attention and he stops too, with the front end of his car about 1/3 into my lane, about 2 feet in front of my bike.
Anyways, end of rant. When my brakes locked, I could have sworn I could feel the bike start to slide down...anyways, would you more experienced riders just have put more throttle to try to beat the car or would you have braked as well? My natural response was to brake and I doubt my 250 had enough umph to get by it. I was so scared I didn't even have time to hit the horn...although when I left I did remember to flip him the bird.
