    Sunshine Coast MX track

    I have learned a few very valuable lessons in the off season on my motorbike. I mean I always had a hunch these things were true, but I was just never a 100%. The first thing I learned is about the ego. The sense of self is strong for people with motorbikes. For some reason the ego is quite strong for me, however, I have discovered that that sense of motorcycle identity exists mainly in the immaterial world. What I learned is the vision I have about myself in my mind can in fact be quite a different one from the one that appears in the material world.
    This lesson was driven home (no pun intended) on not one, but on two occasions at the MX track on the Sunshine Coast when my body was driven into the ground by a wayward combination of simple physics.

    The second lesson I learned is that wrongly manifested ego is quite funny. Let me unpack this statement a bit. You see-- quite simply, I used to think people liked me because they wanted to be like me, when the facts actually are quite different. People seem to like me around perhaps because I am a working example of ego wrongly manifested…I’m the idiot that takes the heat off all the other idiots.

    But the most important thing I learned at the track a few weekends ago was that in the end-- the stuff that happens on the inside of your head will sooner or later always happen around the outside of it. It is why we hang around good riders to get some of that mojo, or what ever you wanna call it. I had the pleasure of watching some really good riders do laps that weekend.

    By the way my tongue still hurts from where I bit a piece of it off when I did a face plant when my bike flipped over backward due to a check my ego tried to write that my body simply couldn’t cash. I believe it is called a whiskey throttle.

    I will not be coming this Sunday as I have opted for a nice peaceful "woods" ride with my buddies...also this Sunday will be the first day back on a moto as I stuck to the mountain bike last week so I wanna gradually work it in slow...I think we are gonna ride behind the university and hit some single track...

    However I am keen on trying that track again before SUMO season gets underway.

    I'm heading over tomorrow to learn those same lessons that you've learned. All those who watch me on a dirt bike for the first time in 4 years are allowed to point, laugh, and generally be derogatory to this fat man who still thinks he can ride.

    I switched the CRF450x back to dirt today to see how crappy I can ride again. The last time I was on dirt, was Vedder MTN a long time ago. I've never been to a MX track. This should be fun!

    That track is an absolute blast! I'm also VERY glad it's got so much deep sand, as that cushioned the fall a few times! I thought I caught some great air, but it was really only about 2 to 3 inches! LOL.

    Whiskey throttle

    Whiskey throttle…it even sounds dangerous. By definition it resounds the feeling of trouble--of outa control trouble. Whiskey was a drink I could always count on to really fuck shit up. Being an all or nothing kinda guy I have always had problems staying on a bike.

    You want to slow down, but you are hanging on now for dear life. As you hang on you twist the throttle and then you gotta hang on more, and the more you hang on the more you twist the throttle….it’s kind of a downward spiral (I guess just like the whiskey). You know you had too much whiskey when you open your eyes in the morning and see a stainless steal toilet in your room.

    You know you should not have gone “one more lap” when your helmet and goggles look like this after.

    I was trying to go fast right at the entrance where people part their trucks, going up hill. Adam (from Carter Honda, who is one of the best riders I have ever seen up close) was sitting on his tailgate and saw the whole thing. He said it didn't look that bad....however coming from an ex pro racer I think "not that bad" is a relative statement...LOL

    The marks look quite peculiar on my helmet…I must have slid directly on the top of my head at some point. But only Adam knows for sure as he was the only person who saw the whole thing.
