First skill to go?

What do you guys think is the first riding skill to go after a break or some time off from riding?

Re: First skill to go?

Vision.

edit: Actually let me expand on that. I think the first skill to go would be the mental ones. It's not like you forget out to downshift or hang off the bike, that's just muscle memory. I'm sure it's different for different individuals. For me, good vision is the first to go. Even after a short break, like the normal time in between events, I find that I have to remind myself in the first few laps back on track to look where I want to go, not where I am going. Same thing on the dirt bike; after a few weeks off I have to realize that I need to be looking at the next obstacle to negotiate, not the one I'm currently riding over.

For me its mental. After a while off the bike I find my confidence in turns has faded. I have to take it easy a few laps, but usually it comes back fairly quick

Re: First skill to go?

body position.

reaction time is easy to tune up but it does diminish with age.
