Well, it's a real question so.......... No I'd say its completely normal. It's always harder than it looks when you see a pro do it, and feeling like your going to fall is probably a good sign. If your fast and crash a lot thats OK, you can learn not to fall, but its a lot harder to learn how to become fast. I'm not fast by any stretch, but still feel like Im about to fall going down some trails.
Mmmmm...shiney new parts...mmmm
