Alan, I agree 100%. In fact, for Christmas, I gave myself the present of a custom made, powder-coated baby blue extension rod that fits over the slalom ski a-tach so I can string my banana hammock up between the pole and the tower.
And it has done wonders for my riding! Whereas before I could only go w2w, now, I'm grabbing tantrums, pulling off off axis 360s and consistentily landing the trick of tricks, the "S" bend.
I've also lost 15 pounds, without having to diet, I've won money at every Indian casino I've visited, I got 5 out of six on the pick six, 21 year old girls are giving me the 'ol "come hither" dither and I'm able to read 10,000 words a minute-- and not just trash novels but technical material as well.
