I stopped caring about speed after my 3rd (yes, THIRD) "lane-departure excursion" in the canyons. Against the odds, all 3 were uneventful for me and the bike. The last was a year and a half ago. Since then, I became extremely cautious about my line and speed. On the straight slab, I still grab a fistful of throttle every now and then but nowhere else...it isn't worth it.

I enjoy the rides so much more now. I live in a place that offers epic views on every ride and now I get to take them in quite a bit more.
