I rate my driving car ability as.....[ 13 votes ]
1. 1. Pretty poor - if you spot me coming your way, best take a detour. 0 / 0%
2. 2. Average - safe and mostly under the speed limit but I might fuck up if faced with emergency stop and not a clue what under/over steer is. 0 / 0%
3. 3. Fairly Good - safe when needed but I know the limits of my car and how to practice getting near them just in case. Observation skills in pre-empting threats also above average 8 / 62%
4. 4. Good - There's not many on the road better than me in terms of being safe and fully aware of those around me but also when conditions allow I can make good fast but safe 'progress' 3 / 23%
5. 5. Driving God - Lewis Hamilton regularly calls me up for tips. In my spare time I practice hazard perception which helps when I'm teaching police pursuit drivers. 2 / 15%

Pulled out of my drive this morning and to the end of my road where there's some temporary traffic lights just to the left of this junction and immediately got pissed off at this 'professional' bus drivers ability to block the exit for us given that we could easily have got out as there wasn't any traffic going left to right along the main road Wall

Anyway, given I had a few minutes waiting it got me thinking how good a driver and rider do you think you are. By this I mean overall rating not how fast or how safe but a combination of both on both dry and traffic free roads Wink and wet and busy roads.

I rate my bike riding skills as.....[ 12 votes ]
1. 1. Pretty poor - most 16 year olds on scooters are safer and faster than me 0 / 0%
2. 2. Average - safe and mostly under the speed limit but not very confident when the going gets faster or wet 0 / 0%
3. 3. Fairly Good - safe when needed but I know the limits of both myself and my bike. Observation skills in pre-empting threats also above average 5 / 42%
4. 4. Good - There's not many on the road faster or more observant of the conditions and other traffic than me. When conditions allow I can make good fast but still pretty safe 'progress' 4 / 33%
5. 5. Riding God - On the track you'll find me swapping tips with Mr Rossi. I'm always up there with the top few in the fast group but rarely bin it. On the road while slower than track I make good fast but safe progress and know when to restrain myself. 3 / 25%

and your bike skills Neutral

Due to the wording I voted higher on the bike poll than on the car poll, but I would actually say its the other way around. I'm fantastic in a car and only great on a bike...
Honest.
