You're less visible to turning cars. You can't see as far up the road to see what the cars in front of you are doing. ...and worst: IF something does happen, you've cut your reaction space in half (or less)
Is it something the Hardley riding schools are teaching?
You know, I have found myself doing that same thing the last while, whereas I used to always stay to the left - for the reasons you list above. My riding style changed after I hit that car in 2010, so I am assuming it's a confidence thing. I guess I had better smarten up!
