I hope you're kidding about riding only once a year...I mean situational awareness, hand-eye coordination, and confidence of one's self all come with ride time.
Not kidding at all. My hand-eye coordination is superior to most regardless of riding a motorcycle. I have great situational awareness in a car that changes not one bit on a bike. I also have great self confidence on my bike but I hardly consider myself more than an average rider. I've ridden bikes for a lot of years.
That being said I understand what you are saying and I will admit that for the first few hours I spend getting "that bike feeling" again. If you are going to the event I will be glad to explain it in detail as I am sure most here are tired of hearing it. The past three years I will have ridden once a year counting this event and the previous two and I didn't ride at all for the two years prior to that. I literally prepped the bike and took off with Stromlurker for the event on the first one. I don't push a bike as hard as I once did but that said there are few people that can push these bikes to their limits.
My only worry is how I will like that Corbin seat I bought on an extreme recommendation that the seat would not just be the most comfortable thing I've ever sat on but that it would make the bike ride as if the suspension had been upgraded to a race suspension status. I'm fuzzy on the original conversation but I believe the person that recommended it also said it added an additional 20hp at the rear axle.
