Do we have consensus?...

After 44 years you're still a noob, unless you oil your boots, pegs, seat and tyres. (Experts oil their hand grips as well).

The real trick to riding properly is to read your horoscope thoroughly so you can time the movement of the COG of the entire solar system to properly weight the tyre contact patches at all times during cornering, acceleration and braking over the entire track you are riding. Its also a little known secret (used only by the best riders!) that you should take your dog with you on the bike, because 3 COGs are better than 2! ...oh, and never, never, never inflate your tyres with helium unless you are wearing a neck brace...

...or am I reading too much into this?
