Brainwashing. For some reason when I first started riding my bike to work, I would feel like I was missing something. Only it wasn't a helmet. It's a seat belt. Yep, a seat belt. Especially if I met a police car. The first thing that came to mind is whether my seat belt was fastened.

And, it wasn't just a thought. I could "feel" that it is was missing...I was so used to being buckled up on the roads that even when riding my bike a "missed" the sensation of the seat belt.

I still on occassion, when I see an LEO, glance down to check my seat belt...and feel foolish.
