Default This makes me angry!

Ok I meant to tell you guys about this awhile ago but I forgot. After riding one weekend I was at school the next day in the gym telling some friends about the weekends ride and a kid in my PE class asked me "How could you POSSIBLY be tired from riding?! You sit on it and turn your wrist!!"...I was just wondering if every non-rider has this rediculous view of the sport we all love! It just surprised me like crazy! Any of you ever experienced this?

I get it from my mom all the time, gets me mad, but I always ask her if she wants to take it for a quick spin, she always says no for some reason.

All the time, bro. We are a very misunderstood breed! Especially those of us over 40. Everytime I show up to work with a skinned elbow or walking a little stiff, they just shake their heads and rib me about not being able to control a simple thing like a motorcycle.
Don't worry about it Mike. Just hang with those of us who understand and don't assign any value to their opinions. Every once in awhile you'll get one of "those guys" on a bike and he will completely change his mind. It's a great moment. I'm sure one of those moments is in your future. Just keep riding.

Ah man I hear that all the time and can't stand it! Before racing, I used to play basketball non stop. I can honestly say that completing a race day is 10-15 times harder than completing a day of basketball. Probably 20 times harder.

I have a buddy who came to the track with me and said if he rode he would dominate and clear everything. Well he got a YZ125 and went racing at budd's creek with me. After I lapped him in 3 laps (so did everyone else), he was talking a little different. His face went from this to this

Yup, I have experienced that many times. Every time making me mad. I always tell them to go ride with me. Never happens though. Bunch of bench racing chickens
