My first ride or two of each year tend to be pretty slow and easy; far more on the side of cautious than carefree, especially if I am toting one of the kids.
Curves are strictly steered from pushing the handle bar and outside, inside, outside around the bends.
I've been out a couple times now and this weekend I took some back roads with lovely twisties. It was awesome.
I wasn't doing wheelies but it still felt pretty good and the road was thankfully free of homicidal, road-raging Californians.
