Anybody ever NOT feel like riding?

I was on a planned very small, group ride through some nice country roads, led by a well-respected rider, but after less than 100 miles I gave up trying to get into it and went home. I just wasn't feeling it - no enjoyment at all. Has this every happened to any of you guys?

This was about two weeks ago, I've since been feeling better and been riding everyday. I don't know what happened on that ride.

Ive done it. Some times you just don't feel it. Maybe conditions, or had other things on the mind. It's like , if you're not feelin it you can keep plugging along but it's not the same lol.

It was all my fault

Sometimes I don't feel like getting up, gearing up, and inspecting the bike, but after I'm on, it's on like Donkey Kong!

Happens to me occasionally. Usually its not me, its the weather. Sometime it can be miserable riding in a Blowdryer that is Houston heat.

^This!

Don't sweat it, it's not like you don't enjoy it anymore, just not at that point in time.

Last year I geared up, went out to the garage got my stuff together and had a feeling wash over me. I put my stuff away, went in the house and did not ride...... I truly believe not riding that day was a blessing.

Hasn't happened since.

It was NOT overly hot that morning - ksu at 8 am. I usually ride in the middle of the day, anyway. Heat has very little effect on me, actually.

I blame Bevo.

Kibi - it's okay. I deserve that.

Are you still working track day? I can imagine it becomes more a job than fun.

No more instructing at trackdays. I love helping people, but I just didn't have the time for it anymore with all the racing I was doing. At times, it did feel like more of a job than fun also, that's about the time I took a step back.

If you don't feel like it, don't. You don't want to jeopardize your safety.
