I have a fairly controlled throttle hand, but I have NEVER been accused of riding like an old lady. I tend to ride mid-pack on group rides; more due to my comfort level than anything. And yes, I ride at altitude: from 5,500-11,000'. Heck, I live in a valley that sits at 7,500'. In the poor bike's defence, the 112rwhp was dyno'd at 6,000'. It will be a whole new experience at sea level.
