Yep, 99% of the time I really don't care about being fast.
Honestly, after all these years on bikes, I still love the sheer kinetic thrill of just riding. I find myself concentrating on being as smooth as I can nowadays...
And a big yeah! to a nice bendy bit of road. That is always where it has been at for me. But even when I get to these bits of road I get more enjoyment out of smoothness and good lines than scratching.
1% of the time, on an appropriate bit of road where I can see clear ahead, and with no side junctions, I might let her rip a bit.
