I used to have a road back east that was the perfect twisty. After a countless runs over time I had it memorized, down pat. I would wring my F4i out through the curves and hills. Everyday the road was the same... except one day, over the crest of a little hill into a blind corner (no worries right, I got the road cased!) Gravel littered my lane. No problem, I've turned in, but I can just drift wide to avoid it. Oppps, nope, cage coming in that lane.
Well, I guess he must have swerved, or slowed, cause I was committed, and had to use some of his lane. Short of it is I learned a big lesson without costing me. Even from minute to minute a road can change, someone can back out of a driveway, someone kid / dog can bolt across the street. Not worth it. A track is the place to lean it over.
Not saying I don't still lean it over a bit, but not to drag the feelers. The road Darkace road looked pretty controlled, this is in now way a slag against you buddy.
My 2 cents.
