    It's such good feeling of accomplishment when you achieve something which you failed at initially.

    It's such a let down when you fail at something you succeeded at initially.

    At least you fell in the soft sand and not the lava!

    Hope you didn't get any sand in your underwear!

    Thanks for sharing...the success and failure.

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    I have fallen a time or two myself. Sometimes I look back at the video to try and figure out what went wrong and I can't.

    Is that the camera under your chin? What kind is it? In that position it seems to make very nice videos.

    ..Yea I basically decided at the last moment to go down the right hand side of the downhill and turned the wheel too fast..
    ..The camera mount is the chest go-pro mount.. but you have to jack it up almost as high as your throat to get these shots..

    ..Watch the vid.. I wasn't riding the front brake... I tried to turn at the last moment and tried to take the right pathway through which 'no-one had blazed a trail through this season' yet..
