Re: the old guys who still want to ride thread!

All credit to you for shredding so hard and being rad at young age of 52.....


I'm not having a midlife crisis, its just I don't give a F**K, about the things I don't give a F**K about, anymore.

The long forgotten "Did I step in dog crap?" lawnmower variation just made a comeback!

Re: the old guys who still want to ride thread!

I went to the local skate park on Sunday after about 20 years. The place was totally empty which was good and bad, in my mind. Was great getting my old ass out there after so much time. It's really strange because it was new the first time I was there and now it's quite aged. Man time flies because it seems like it was just a few years since the first time I was there. The thing I noticed most myself about me is that I felt a little heavy on my feet. I'm only 170 but for the first time I could feel there was some weight on those pedals. LOL. No pics, but hopefully I can get some next time since I hope to get there a little more often than once every ....20 years!

Re: the old guys who still want to ride thread!

This isn't much, but it is to me. I rode park & street up until 2001ish before going back to flat only.  Over the years I guess I developed a fear of transitions. Injuries only compounded the problem. Well today I jumped my 1st transitions in around 20 yrs! I also footplanted the spine which I haven't done for that long either. I probably would have jumped the spine, but the pinched nerve in my  neck had other ideas (it causes "pins & needles" in my arms)
At any rate, here's a short clip...
I'll be back for more because "The feelings back!"

It was. It was small enough not to intimidate, but just big enough to add a little kick.

Im trying Brett! 25 years of construction work is starting to slow me down a bit the last couple of years. I should probably consider looking for a new way to earn a living, because I really don't want to stop riding any time soon.

My dirt jump bike got plenty dirty this weekend at Posh, Catty and the Philly Pump Track. We rode so much we didn't get any photos other than this one.
