Replace "Rad" with "Dirty Deeds" and you're correct.

But, yes, I've seen it.

I guess I'm not a "true BMXer". Never even heard of it.

And Earthquake. And West World. Somehow, it was cheaper to take us all to the theater than hire a babysitter.

Who here can find the shift/cap and punctuation keys.


Who has seen Satraini and Vai on the G3 tour? If you haven't you are not a true guitar player, no matter how good you are.

Always with the guitars! I've seen Jimmy Page live. If I get to see Clapton, it's all good.

I saw rad. What was better was going to pro freestyle shows. I saw Woody Itson (Hutch), Martin Aparijo (Torker), Ron Wilkerson, Brian Blyther, Dave Nouri (all 3 riding for Haro) and a few others.. those guys were awesome.

I remember when the Skyway show came through town way back when...saw Matt Hoffman when he was a new pro - saw the GT team also, but the big names weren't in the show.

Oh, and saw Rad - what a cute storyline.

I saw all those guys, but the tops was the first year of the BMX Action trick team tour, with RL Osborn (on a Redline) and Mike Buff (on a Hutch) with the Duke of Oakley as their announcer. Don't forget Mike Dominguez (on a Diamonback), Eddie Fiola (on a GT) or any of the Vans tours. All of a sudden I'm feeling nostalgic and a little bit old! lol

there is really only one way to describe rad bmx movie and that is well rad, i downloaded the movie last night and it was pretty good, i thought it was just some oldschool vid at first and then i found out it had a storyline and i was stoked

Yeh Rad is probably the best bmx movie made really. If you want to see a poor arse effort of a bmx movie from around the same time with Nicole Kidman in a lead role before she was really famous, go see BMX bandits. Quite terrible really.

I hope that you're joking. Maybe in the "box office" sense, but pretty much all of the Ell Bells ("Ring the Gack" or "Gloat", anyone?) beat the hell out of it.
