The bypases seem the logical place to start. The ego is more difficult.
Years ago, on a balmy Sunday evening, all our neighbors were out working in their front yards or just visiting or whatever. I was returning from a McD's run on my newly detailed red BMWR90S. As always, drawing envious looks from the neighbors. I slowly rolled into the driveway, put the kickstand halfway down, lost it -- dropped the bike hard and had Big Macs rolling down the street while the neighbors laughed and pointed.
You'll get over it.
