When I get that thought, I slow down. I don't push it when I have bad joojoo.

You're right though, top speed you really start focusing hardcore on what you're doing. I tried to explain it once as having terminator vision, imagining the terrain gridline, little squares identifying potential hazards and as speed tracker in the corner showing your speed. haha
