You know what - I think you are exactly right about getting wussy!
I just remembered WHAT and how I rode when I started riding bikes - my God, I would be scared even sitting on it nowadays!
Riding self-built chopper made from old Russian boxer on rock-hard locally made tyres, with drum brakes and stretch forks just everywhere...
Riding VT250 offroad and on stones size of child head....on street tyres...
Yeah, I am buyng set of 21s. No more hesitations. Thank you for confidence boost!
