What do you all do while riding? While I ride I (okay call me a stupid dreamer) dictate a race with either #4 or #199. Also I sing. It seems those things do well to get my blood surging. Somebody else out there must do something, tell me about it.

I stare at the trail looking for the root that is going to send me to the ground. :scream:

I giggle like a little girl! If you want to have something to think about while riding then try racing an enduro. :cool:

Humming 'Flight of the Valkaries' and looking out for new wires seem to consume all my senses, especially at night.

I have found out that if I think too much when riding I crash. I just try to keep my front tire on the trail, if I can do that I’m happy.

I think about not crashing! :think That and I talk out loud to myself. Stand up, brake, set forward in the turn, weight the outside peg!

If I ride for a long time (as in an Enduro) around mile 60 or 70 I usually have a brief attack of vomit followed by an extended attack of the dry heaves.

Shortly there after I'm swearing that I'll never ride again... ever.

Then I go home. Sleep and wake up only to dream of doing it all again.
ROTFLMAO:)
I think I do all of the Truespode tricks. It took me some time to learn them but I've got' em down now.

Usually nothing if i'm by myself, but get me around a group of riders. Watchout! I fool around, do stupid stuff, and have them all laugh at me when i crash. Then i say "well i didnt see you try it" and they respond "well we're not stupid, but your fun to watch". :cool:

if you have time to sing you must not be going fast enough lol, I'm always looking for which line to pick next, always focusing on what's next, to me it's like a chess game, always plan three moves ahead of time.

I think to myself:
"Why the %$# did you take THAT line?? It stunk!! Next time take the better line! Numbskull!"
Then next time around i take the same sucky line and curse myself for it....:confused: :confused:

"yzeater is making a fabulous comeback folks, he's absolutely blazing the whoops and demolishing the jumps.....Ohhhhhh Owowwwoo hes down!....
damn those factory mechanics....Art, we've just seen a display of shear genius riding ability coupled with less than desirable suspension work from factory bumblers.. They better get their act together before next season. It's been rumored that yzeater will move up from the peewee tracks to full on grass! And when he does, he may not take these guys with him."
"Your thoughts, Art....?"

i just think about next obstacle. i think about whats ahead.

sometimes i do things like put songs in my head. like fat lip, or some matrix music, something to get my in a rythme(sp?)
when im behind someone whose a little faster than me, i just follow, do what he does, and try to beable to match his speed by myself

any of you guys/ladies ever ride with small head phones (ear piece size) on? I thought that would be sweet to do, but I don't think it would be the brightest idea in the world either. :p
