What kind of bad habits do you have when you ride? I'm sure we all have some and I think it'd be helpful to have this up for others to spot things they never even realized.
I'm pretty new, so I don't think I have too many yet, but I do have one in particular that springs to mind, and it's pretty bad.
I have a tendency to forget to do up my helmet. I've only done it three times, but three times is three times too many. I never even realize until I hear the snap strike the outside of the helmet when I'm riding. The first time it happened, I couldn't figure out what it was, I figured it was some sort of weird rock chips that were flying out from the car in front of me, but when I stopped, I realized and did it up right there.
I did it twice last year and then on Wednesday night I picked up my bike and halfway home I realized but I was on the freeway at that point so all I could do was tuck the strap into my jacket and hope for the best. Maybe I should have pulled over and done it up, but I didn't. First ride of the season and I already fucked up. Good start!
Anyone else have anything they want to share?
