talking to myself.....

Just want to know if I'm the only one that does this while riding on the track?

Very often, I will talk to myself out loud while on the track, reminding myself....."Breathe, breathe....stay relaxed....." "Head to the exit, elbows bent..."

Honestly, it works IMO...just a little self encouragement...

kidding....i do it too....

upon further review of what YOU say to yourself.....i'll have to say my dialouge goes something a little different.

usually, it's a mix of laughing, yelling at other riders, and singing old school metallica songs. just turning a wheel is encouragement enough....

"Remember to brake later into turn 1, start turn in at the little seal strip, get on the gas sooner coming out of 2......AHHHH, shit, shit ,shit...that was close. Less gas coming out of 2."

I do, I'm usually like "hold it open, hold it open...back it off, downshift, downshift, brake, feather, feather... who the hell was that a$$hole parking it in the corner?"

or, honestly, I actually talk to my bike.

Even on the track I have used my Ipod. It gets me in a good mindset. I have caught myself yelling at other riders

I'm usually talking to myself on the track...but how much depends on the corner for me...sometimes I'm talking myself through a corner "brake, brake, brake...turn in now...easy on the throttle" and stuff like that.

Other corners (more often than not ) there's a lot of screaming happening on my side of the helmet.
