Re: WOW...Went Riding, Met DMC & Kevin Robinson... (Beware...Pics)

smile I'm still giddy about it.

Totally surreal and awesome experience.
I'm so lucky I live in a happening part of the city. Those guys were going out on the town with their friends and just happened upon me on my bike. And were super humble and personable.

Thanks for all the comments everyone.
I'm so lucky we had the camera to share this day with everyone.

That's like what you daydream about when you're a kid riding and practicing tricks. Dude, that rocks!


When I was young, I lived vicariously through my buddies who were getting laid - always asking for details.
Now, I just live vicariously through your bmx scores.

That's sooo cool!  Woody was my hero and I can and will kick myself over and over for not getting to Rockford this year.  What a great story, DMC and Kevin Robinson on the street!

Re: WOW...Went Riding, Met DMC & Kevin Robinson... (Beware...Pics)

Matt, that's very cool to hear. It is funny because I think those of us in KC almost take it for granted how big Dennis is/was (always will be:)). We have had such easy access to him over the years, and he always makes himself available to all of the riders to this day. But, the fact that you met DMC AND Kevin Robinson so randomly is great.

On a side note, I went to a contest here last year, and my now 6-year old got to meet Dennis. He wasn't competing, just riding and hanging-out, and I made a point to re-introduce myself and my son. So now, anytime we see BMX on TV, my son wants to know if Dennis is riding, and if not, why? He was stoked to see DMC on the X-Games last weekend...

Oh, and a couple weeks back, I linked to a bunch of coverage DMC has had in recent weeks, over on my site:

Re: WOW...Went Riding, Met DMC & Kevin Robinson... (Beware...Pics)

Thanks for the link Jeremy! Very cool little collection of DMC Info.

....

KMPAP... Where you been brotha?
Am I gonna see you next week at Summer Slam?  (say yes! - you even live closer than me.)

-----

I am the Owl, Yeah man.
i actually mentioned the site to DMC and KR, and they said they'd check it out.
It's awesome to see old pros (whether still riding, or ones who've been out of touch for a while) get back into it .. even if just to enjoy some pics and share stories... But These 2 guys haven't ever stopped. Especially DMC.


Here's a little DMC Flatland flavor for you'all.
If this isn't some inspiring footage.. I don't know what is....

Yup, well there you have it folks...that would have to be the best story the museum will probably ever hear.  With pics to prove it to boot.  I'm happy for you Matt.  That's amazing.  smile

They were only in Philly for the night. The Tony Hawk Huck Jam tour came through (apparently -  but I had no idea)...  I was just riding my bike.... and BAM.

They were kinda dressed up to go out on the town - they had a bunch of friends with them. and I live in the restaurant district of the city.. so there a lot of nightlife in that area. 

Lucky me on saturday smile
