It HAS to be muscle memory. There's no other way around it.

Yep - I do this every spring in an empty school parking lot on the weekend. Just to get used to it again.

Hey Nutz, those first reactions are great learning tools. I wouldn't over think it though. You will probably ride much more cautiously now. Gotta love NC pet owners.

Everywhere I go I see people under the influence of cell phones! My riding style is aggressive-defensive

Yes they are. Pet owners around here are...interesting to say the least.

I am much more concerned about dear running across the road than dogs!

I should be too. We have a lot of deer in town here. They like to randomly cross the road in the early mornings or late evenings. So far...I've been lucky. It's easier to see a large deer running across the road then a little furry football with legs.
