Three groups if you think about it.

Saying your not a squid doesnt always mean your not one,a squid always thinks he has it fully under control. Its why hes a squid.

A few years on a scooter and breaking the mirror off a car isnt the same as a gold medal at the ISDE.

I used to play golf (very badly) with a guy who once asked me as I was walking up to the tee "Do you inhale or exhale during your swing?" I couldn't hit the ball the rest of the day.

You start thinking about all the advice, solicited or otherwise you get here on riding, you'll end up in the same state of mind.

ADV's a great place to hear about people's trips, their bike experiences, and there are some pretty funny people here. But if you're here for advice you're already screwed.

It is hard to respect any club that would let me in.

Your safety is mostly your own business. But don't be a hazard to others, because that's all of our business.

When I was younger I used to ride very aggressively using the athleticism and nimbleness of my machine to slice and dice traffic, corners, you name it. People were always pulling out in front of me or cutting me off. I took it all personally like the world was out to get me and the only way to survive was to rise to the occasion and fight my way through.

This was until 27 or 28 years old. The expensive tickets finally sunk in and the hormones were starting to chill and the most amazing thing happened. I slowed down and begun to relax. Still paying attention to possible death scenarios but rolling with the pack instead of always trying to be first or get to an opening and be all alone. Wouldn't you believe it, people stopped cutting me off and pulling out because they actually had time to see me and I now had plenty of time to react and adjust comfortably.

Maybe you are still young and full of piss and vinegar? Attitude is everything.
