Newb Status

I know it's probably a repost, but I'm curious. If I've put 14k miles on in my first year rain or shine and ride my 2fiddy daily still.... would I still be considered a newb by the average rider (not squid)?

What is the general guidelines for doing away with complete newb status and just being a "rider"?

Ok How about this then, give it your best shot:

- You know you're a newb when, you think dragging knee is done in draggin jeans.
- You know you're a newb when, you forget the kickstand needs to be down to keep the bike up.
- You know you're a newb when, you're bike is screaming on the straightaways, but everyone catches up when it gets twisties.

lol. You guys are funny. I guess I'll have to ride till I'm 60 and then perhaps I won't be considered an outright newb. Hmm.
