More Motocross

I have a tough time participating in activities that I might not be good at.

It's tough to make me feel embarrassed, but challenging me to perform in an area which I am untrained {especially when it involves sports} is a great place to start trying.

I'd rather not try than try and fail...especially in front of people who are really good at that specific activity. It's a silly fact about me...one that I just recognized {or became conscious of} about a month ago.

Having said that, I hope you have some insight on how I was feeling while riding this motorcycle. I was trying to look cool, while really just hoping I didn't knock-over the small children riding the track with me.Jeff was laughing at my ridiculous perfect posture:

I went around like three times, since I knew all of the adults were watching me...and even the kids were weighing my skills against their own...

But, as I said before: I'm willing to give it another go.

I bet the kids were intimidated when they saw the number 1 bike creeping up on them.
