Really? So approximately 40 hours of riding from start to finish of that montage? That's it?

Very cool video BTW. I've shown it to several friends that are just starting and they feel so much better after having watched it. That probably sounds insulting, but I mean it in a positive way. There are videos of high end riders, videos of instructors, but no videos of what it is actually like to learn. They fall a lot, they get frustrated and while I keep telling them that everyone starts like that, they don't see their own progress (particularly the phase where you're transitioning from falling leaf to turning across the fall line)
