Couple of times i've had people ask, "what makes you think you can give advice?" So I'd like to gauge NR's opinion on this. Does time spend riding inherently relate to experience? Is there some time limit at which people are able to give advice if they wish? Can a Learner/Newer Rider give advice if it is right? (if they are dumb and get everything wrong, then they should keep their mouth shut) Does the rider have to be awesomely fast to be able to give advice? Does the size of ones bike directly affect how much people should listen? The reason I ask is, I don't like giving advice on things I haven't yet become really competent at. I believe i'm competent at city riding and commutting and roadcraft in traffic. I believe I could give some good ideas that might actually help people. Should newer riders that are competent at certain skills be passing on some of their views to other riders? Or should they stay quiet?
