Good for Dave for picking it up so fast. But he's got a ways to go - the difference between the two of you in "smoothness" is very noticeable. He'll get there though....

Dave looks pretty wild at times but you'll also see extended moments when he has his arms down looking really stable - unusual at this stage.
Notice I am keeping my distance just the same! He is advancing amazingly fast. For folks that don't know us - you're looking at a few months of riding versus 9 years.

I've been trying a slightly different strategy for mounting lately and it has been pretty successful until today.
Today it took me 20 tries to get going.
I totally psyched myself out.
Weird.
A few days ago I was getting on 1st try.
Time to do something else for a few days  :thumbup: :biggrin: :ihih:

 Utilize a mounting pressure relief valve.
Causing trouble when not climbing.

F4?

Sounds personal there JC, but Iím sure Klink would help.
I'm not worthy.

Sounds like you need to bring the Ruckus.

It was personal since I actually almost took off on the first try and nutted myself in the process (I know TMI).
That is one inherent danger of the uni. clink wouldn't know as he is in the "frozen chicken" club.
I think my record for failed mounts is 20 or 21 so that was either a tie or another personal worst.

Sounds like you need to bring the Ruckus.

I did but at Pinns.
May try to get back on the wheel tomorrow - or not.
I'm purdy sore.
