Is it just me or do your skills sharpen as you ride in the dark and your speed increase?

Riding the 50 miles from Silverstone to home the other night I really enjoyed the dark journey. The lights on Yamaha Fazer8 give really good visibility and I noticed that I was using other cars, cats eye and road markings far more than I do in daylight. I found my speed increasing and at points I had to curb it a little, I was nearing three figure speeds which are never a good thing.

I also found other road users seemed to see me far more than they do in daylight, another bonus!

Have fun and ride safe.
