At the very latest, I brake from the last u-turn possibility. Anything below that and you might as well just prepare to hit something.

yeah but I used to comfortably let myself get into the 60's before touching my brakes and yeah it used to be aggressive break around/post last u turn.

Today I doubt I got much over 40 and was feathering most of the way down.

The older you get, the slower you are.

ill see if I can disprove this statement - it may take significant effort to do so.

You're a Dad now, different responsibilities - you need to be there for your offspring = less risk taking.

It's more an age/general experience/imagination thing IMO.

When I was younger, me and the Hopper boys used to drive down Mills Rd out of Roleystone (in our clapped-out Datsuns/Corollas, bald tyres, shit brakes, the works) at ludicrous speeds....and that was before they resurfaced it and made it more than 1.5 lanes wide.

Now it's actually got a decent surface, but even driving my Scoobies I chicken out and start braking for corners at about 100.

When you're younger, even if you die you still have years to go until retirement so plenty of time to recover.
