Don't be silly. Bear in mind I'm the one filming (so not that great a rider at all), and two of the guys I ride with are Chris and Ant Northover - road testers for Superbike magazine and fully unhinged. I say whoever has the biggest grin on their face wins... :)

I know what you mean battle i started at the end of last year and I'm still next to hopeless, I just enjoy it and don't worry about everyone riding past me like I'm standing still.

^ Like everyone is doing to me in my video? ^ :D

It's all about the shits and giggles. I feel like i'm getting better every time I go out, and watching the guys that really know how to ride just makes you want to improve.

Not sure how old you are but I only started 2 years ago after 4 years off due to a horrendous road riding accident. Vowed I'd never swing my leg over again but hey ho. I'm now 40 and thoroughly enjoy all aspects of it,enduro, h+h, laning and the weekends in Wales. The one thing that I notice is there are a lot of 'maturer' riders out there in comparison to other disciplines. Ok so you have to have a reasonable level of fitness, however as I have been told by many it is mostly technique which comes from bike time, this will improve every time you ride whether ou notice it or not. For this reason I ride as often a possible and make sure I enjoy every part of it. Nothing beats seeing your mate face down in the mud. Keep riding and keep smiling.
