* Wife used that word when I was watching my own videos, to which I replied that she's just jealous.
Some of my videos I watch more than others. I was pissed when I forgot to push the record button on my GoPro when I had my worst crash of the season. Things happen so fast on the track...watching the video when I get home gives me clues on what I did wrong. My Season wrap up video I've watched a few times...not because of the riding...I'm new to video editing and I was pretty happy with how the clips/music turned out. Other vids, my riding was pretty bad/cringy and I'm fine with not seeing them again...lol.
I will say I'm sort of a hypocrite though. I've never been a fan of social media like Facebook and Twitter with people putting there every passing thought and meal online...yet here I am with some of that "look at me" stuff with my Youtube videos.
