The goal of these constructive commentaries is to not only educate you, but to educate me. If there's something I'm plainly ignorant to, I encourage you to challenge my line of thinking. In other words, I'm not shy about being critiqued. I've rarely been in any clans, so if you have any knowledge I don't have, I want to know.

My goal is to cover every vehicle in the middleweight group, in no order or quantity. There will probably be more Wild Wing and Mach Bike races due to the nature of the game's demands.

If you want me to do another weight class vehicle, I really have to be in the mood for it because I almost never, ever take any other character besides Diddy Kong on Wi-Fi. Thankfully, I love Baby Mario, Bowser, and Donkey Kong. If you have a character request, I can do that too.

Afterthoughts: Just by editing these, I've been forced to analyze my way of playing and have actually learned from it!

Wow, how I lost so much of what I had. Last time I seriously touched Standard Bike was, I think, in February or March, 2011, where I still barely used it. I used to use it religiously before I picked up Sprinter. I can't believe how sloppy I was in these races. It may or may not look sloppy to you if you've never used it enough to know the difference between skill and a big, stinky mess, but it sure looked horrific to me. These races are the continuation of the last Standard Bike races I uploaded a couple weeks ago, same day, same group. I spent so much time scrambling around, turning during wheelies, and doing a bunch of slacker wheelies. I was like, I can't upload this crap! But then again, the races were too interesting to discard, "interesting" being the only reason I upload anything. I don't upload based on wins or losses. How boring.

That was a month ago, but I'm so much sharper today with consistent practice. I can't believe how sloppy I was. I had a really, really nice time the other night where I kept 9999 for around 10 or 12 straight races. I started at 9999 in a 3-player room, then the very next race, I was flooded with about 7 more 9K players who all joined at once. I thought my VR would drop way down, but it didn't. Lowest it dipped was 98xx, but it climbed right after that. That's the first time I've been able to keep a high point total on Standard Bike in a room like it.

Also, you might want to look up what the NDAA bill is. As scary as it is, I could only put a sincere message to counter the tension created in that thread because I won't be visiting the MarioKartWii.com forums much in the next few weeks, so I thought I'd include it here. And, so I could wish you all a merry Christmas without the need for text.

Unrelated personal note for heart attack prevention and to avoid catastrophic butt-punching tangents: don't let stealthy people sneak up behind me and pound me on the head!
