Even on a really good twisty road, I still take it easy. After having been on a track (and wrecked on a track) things happen too fast to make it worth it to push the limits on a road. It's just not worth the risk.

Here in California, every season seems to start with a pile of dead young men. IMO, men that suffer from Age Disadvantage (AKA young) think things can't happen to them.

It's sad to see their lives cut short and it's so hard to convince them not to do what they're about to do.
