i have a friend a almost never has motivation to ride but usually when we go out in the front and he tries some half cabs he will get hyped and want to go ride and all he talks about that night is riding. but then the next morning he doesn't have the motivation. and the few times i can get him to go its just a lame session and hes not hyped at all. i don't have anyone else to ride with and he sends hard as fuck and when he applies himself he does some cool shit.

You can't really force anything, if he wants to ride, he will. If not, he won't. My small group seems to always stay hyped in sessions with high-5's, fistbumps, and filming each other.

I feel completely unmotivated recently due to work making me tired (and 99% of the riding I see now is boring). Maybe he’s tired? Maybe he’s suffering depression? There could be plenty of reasons he’s not often in the mood to ride.
You can suggest things, like eating better or going to bed earlier to give him more energy, but you can’t make him ride.

Make youtube vids and send him the links. Maybe he will want to get involved.

Are we talking real deal depression here? If that's the case, a doctor should be the go-to, not a BMX.

Well for me it took a divorce to get me motivated to get on a bmx again after 34 years . We went on vacations , did what marry couple and family supposed to do then bam , she filed for divorce.
Worked worked and worked alll for this. I was depressed for a year but with my 18 and 12 year olds I had to get and be better. When my daughter saw a pic of me at my moms house on bmx she said I want a bike like that... when we go riding I feel so fucken Gooooood. Fuck going and getting therapy and meds.... ride a bike👍 Of course sleeping more which I lacked, cause of work, less beer and meats 😡 and eat more veggies and fruits and some exercise helps too.
Hope your friend gets out of that shell .
