Ask yourself this question...

If you were to put some 'paper money',say $20 on a bike next to yours at the front of the class and you turn to your class and say "if someone wants $20,all they have to do is ride up front with me (you)",how many takers would you have?

I know I have at least several riders who'd take my money (and look at me funny, as in, why am I just giving money away?) but the question is, why? Are you trying to bring out the shy but poor among you? ;)

I had not 1 person willing to step up.I was lost for words.The stage I ride on isn't any higher than 4 inches up and it was on my NXT rather than the usual piece of metal.1 person would have done it for $100 though.
My thought process was coming back from riding on stage with Mark,Michelle & Sandro in London today(thank you guys,you made me very happy).I was totally exhausted from riding 5 classes yesterday and the first ride today was an Alpe d'Huez ride.Well I know I pushed myself much harder by being up on stage than if I were on the floor.I felt really good about myself after riding with them (a spur of the moment thing) and I wanted one of mine to feel the same.

I do not know how many takers I would have. . . but I can honestly say I would jump at the chance to be in the saddle next to some of the fine voices on this forum. I have certainly taken more than I have given and I am not just trying to stroke the previous writers egos!:D

Bottles & a leak...now that would have tipped the balance for me.
