Those last two ideas are good....but Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX is WAY better.

You could draw out your dream park....try to design parts....make up logos for real or made up companys.

Ummm....let's see....you could tech deck?


Maybe not.

Couple weeks off of the bike. Sit around be miserable and make everyone else miserable. Could always drink and watch tv. Now,there is a cure to make one even more dispondent.

Interbmx isn't as fun as it as when you dirst sign up. Myspace gets old after you get like over 400 friends. Very few of mine are random adds.

Nitro R/C cars, if you have money laying around. Mine goes around 60mph and can easily with no effort clear bmx jumps. I've jumped my whole front yard with a x factor ramp. Thats pretty much all i did when i couldnt ride.

Traxxas Jato, the only bad thing about it is that if you go on road with knobbie tires they become slicks in no time.

If anyone cares to know how I am, I just came back from the hospital. I had two screws put in, and they say I'll need a cast for 3 to 4 months. Right now I am extremely tired though because I just came back.

Could you borrow or rent an arm-powered recumbent while you heal? I have even seen arm powered 4-wheelers for down-hilling. I drafted a guy in Death Valley one night as he cruised along at 18 MPH on arm power. 'Course he had won the LA wheelchair Marathon for 2 years.

The 3.3 Jato is ment for on road use. Not to mention the 2.5Jato has more than enough power

you off-road with a 3.3 it works fine. But agreed 2.5 is way to much power in a Jato.
