Re: Biggest cause of FEAR?
The biggest cause of fear? Lack of knowledge and experience.
Like getting into a corner too fast and knowing not to fixate on the edge of the road, and to look way ahead without even thinking about it. Like knowing that you can trust your tires beyond your comfort zone. If it scares you to brake hard, lean over, run through some gravel, ride in the rain, or other things that happen on almost every ride, it is not the the things causing fear. It is lack of knowledge and experience.
When is the last time you practiced a panic stop? If the answer is not almost every ride, then you are guilty.
