    Great link, I'm all for roadcraft and agree with, and try to action all of that as much as possible, except for maybe point 19...

    19. Test the Slipperiness of a Road by Tapping Your Rear Brake
    If you find yourself riding in slippery road conditions and can't gauge how much traction you have, just tap your rear brake in a straight line and see if the tire skids or if there is traction. This will help you gauge both cornering and stopping traction.
    Had some fun on the damp roads this morning, and the only traction test I have is acceleration slip and post-tip in rear wheel slide on corner exit... has anyone here used this rear brake skid gauge successfully?
