"I use to motorcycle race extensively, and have accumulated so many trophies I had to throw most of them away....just saying that I know motorcycling...ANYONE who threads the needle (go in between cars) is an idiot AND a flaming ass"
You had better not tell the 10s of thousands of motorcycle couriers in Europe that. They'll be out of work. My best mate in the UK was a courier (Yam XS1100), I never rode pillion on his machine anywhere near sober, far too frightening in downtown Manchester.
That said, I also used to race. (Kaw KXs when I was young (Moto-x) and a 1962 Norton Domiracer (that I still own) in vintage roadracing later in life). I never threw away a trophy however.
