Well said. You know, I’ve been through my share of bikes and I have a nice bunch now but the bike I can ride with the most skill and that I’m most comfortable with, BY FAR, is my work bike, a ‘13 Harley Police Electra Glide. I am more comfortable and more confident on that 900+ lb pig than my 260 lb Beta. Why is that? Seat time. Riding it every day and also training and competing with it (if you’ve never watched videos of “police motorcycle skills competition”, check some out). I know that bike so well that when I get on it, it honestly feels like a part of me. As corney as that sounds, it’s true. I know exactly how that bike is going to react to any control input in any situation and what’s more, it’s all instinctive. We spend so much time trying to find that unicorn (and I am as guilty of that as anyone!) but if you just get a bike and put in the seat time, quality seat time with some good training, you would be amazed at how skilled you can become. I really should take my own advice with my off road riding!
