10. I’m really competitive

T10 Racing

I’ve always thought of myself as a live-and-let-live kinda guy. Well, put me on a track with a bunch of buddies on similar bikes, and I can only think about beating them. The good news was that, in the class I raced, we were all old enough to not have any pro-racing dreams and wanted to go back to our jobs on Monday morning. So, while the racing was close (We were racing EX500s; how could it not be?), there was never any “victory-or-hospital” mentality.
