    How do you do that? Have you not slept for a week or so? You need an IV of RedBull flowing through your system!!!

    I can't see how anoyone could fall asleep on a rider while its running. While its not running, thats a different story though.

    Last year, after mowing all week from daylight to daybreak, I started to doze off while mowing a field at our church. I think w/ all of the bumps & the vibration from the mower it started to rock me to sleep. It didn't help that my headset radio was playing some soothing country at the time. Needless to say, that weeks lines weren't all too straight in the field.

    Ok now it makes sense. when mowing, ALWAYS play something that wont put you to sleep. in other words, get some KISS goin or somethin like that. if you can fall asleep listening to Detroit Rock City, theres obviously something wrong with you.
