Re: 40 and still rippin`

A couple of kids the other day were riding this brick fountain structure south of downtown minneapolis on specialized P series style bikes.  kid says "arnt you a lil old for riding a kids bike!?"  I said prolly but I aint got to over compensate for s#!t right before I gapped this path with a low rail and srub.  (thanks little man for reminding me that BMX fackin rules over your mothers third husband.

I told him to get some pegs and well see......

uh oops you got 3/8 axels and disk brakes .... nevermind.

Heh, thanks! That's my other passion smile I just found out there are 2 skate parks and 3 BMX tracks all within 1 hour of each other!! If any of you ever come to Naples, Florida check me out and maybe I can learn a thing or two! Peace!!

Yeah, 40 is like almost dead and stuff.  Do you like Journey, and the grateful dead??!?!?!?

Re: 40 and still rippin`

I was on a nose manual and a stick came out of nowhere just a small tick. big enough to make a "bump". It threw off my balance and managed a new trick called the tooth plant. I cracked my front tooth all the way into the gums cracked everywhere. I hate trees lol. that was the worst 600 i spent to fix that. or well my mother paid i was only 14 at the time.

Re: 40 and still rippin`

good story
1982
I was on my way home, then I saw a few chicks on the other side of the street.
In my mind I saw me bunnyhopping the curb with a big airtime, but I think I was more concentrated on the girls then on the bunnyhop, so my frontwheel landed against the curb. This was the first frontflip attemp, I believe.
Big laughs from the other side of the street.

Re: 40 and still rippin`

I just took these at the track, a day after I turned 40 years old a week ago. Age is just a number. I am the one on the left, the rider on the right is 14 years old.
