Wow, I always wondered if that could be done, great work. You'll have to show me how you did that sometime.

Cool stuff!

Daniel, the map looks great! I knew it was possible to do that in various programs/gpses, but haven't tried myself. I'll have to look into that.

That landed me on my butt.

Happy, I think you should steal that 150 and ride it. You learn how to tame that and we all will be following you

giving it gas isn't always the right thing to do but, it seems like more often than not that it is. Think of it like being a water skier getting pulled behind a boat, only you're hanging on to the bars instead of a ski rope.

That 150 is a hell-bike.

Go fast enough and all the little rocks and roots and gullies you're trying to dodge don't need dodged anymore. The faster you go, the less you have to balance.

Momentum is king!! When in doubt air it OUT!! But if you still don't make it you was going to crash anyway.

Psych your self up. Heck, you ARE a badass and no one can tell you different! Bend at the knees, arch your back, keep your head up and be proud! Everybody has to do this at some point and it's gets a little easier every time!

At least that's what I tell myself every time I go to the Dr. for a physical.

D00d, if you're arching your back for the doctor I hope she's helping via pelvic thrusts.

And I'm definitely no badass.
