And it better be warm, ready and waiting for me and I aint talkin about dinner either baby*I expected to hear grief and cause an argument, I guess i did it in just the right way that she said of course, complete with no hint of payback drinks for the rest of the year on me!
Probably because you left out the part in red. 6 months free drinks sounds about right for me not pointing out the fact that I gave up about 8-12 hours a week of riding. Im actually out less now

As for me, a plethora of enthusiasm takes over where skill drops off

Yeah I learned that quick but use the words balls, indifference or just wanting it to end no matter what the results are instead of enthusiasm

at the point where the branch pulled the bike over on me I decided to take a little breather and water down only to find out I only had 2 sips left. Tired, hot and dehydrated I took a very small very dark orange pee and looked down the trail to see that roughly 3 foot high almost perfectly flat rock face with a little kicker near the top awaited me not 50' down the trail. As I pondered why the hell I decided to get into enduro racing about 3-5 bikes passed me and all of them went up and over no problem. Knowing that they too were only human and that the only successful way for me to make it to the next check was up and over I put my helmet on and fired the bike up, and not caring if I made it over the rock with the bike or over the handlebars without the bike I drove right at the damn thing at I speed I hoped wouldn't hurt too much. Well just like in the vids that little kicker brought the ass end up and the the front end down and I thought wow that was too easy and continued on. Another little trick I use is when I get feeling like I really just want to lay down and quit is to think of AWM.. when in doubt throddle out. The key to that is to visualize the misspelling of throttle. That makers me chuckle out loud every time.

From what I remember there were 2 pretty steep rock faces the video isn't the clearest but I think at around 5:58 was the one I was talking about if not it was pretty similar.
