It seems to me we're actually in agreement that you need a good awareness of everything going on around you (near/far, left/right, front/back) and we're just exploring the best way to achieve all of this, and what we'll call it. To me this seems quite different to the concept that started this bit of the discussion which was focusing on the vanishing point to the near exclusion of all other aspects of road position and riding technique.

Oh I don't follow or remember everything said here. Too much arguing.

And yes it would seem awareness of one's surroundings and keen knowledge of both the bike's capabilities as well as your own go a long ways in keeping insurance rates down. So in that we are on the same page.
