And I have said how many times how kak I am on a twisty, the thumb throttle makes it possible for me to do what I do.Aside from the banter I think the dudes are trying to help.

I fail to see why you guys think it holds a person back. But none of you would actually be able to really give proper valuable input because no one has tried and if you did, it would feel alien too. You would actually have to ride it for a while to give decent feedback.
It's purely the stupidly blinded people with the whole quad hatred thing I reckon. Have a look when anyone mentions a quad on here. The response is not exactly welcoming. Age old thing.
Im already riding quite gnarly stuff with Clint who is probably the only guy that will tell me that the progress is good.
