The is no end of riding season, it just goes from outdoor parks to indoor. Instead of biggest trick, it's who can hit their head the hardest on the roof of the garage above the quarter pipe.

yup thats what i was talking about. i didn't wanna dig up the old thread on dcstreet though.

cop = to buy/steal/obtain whatever. the dk's got a stock street/street tire combo, but that's not gonna cut it for the riding i'm trying to do. i'd like to get a dirt/street combo so i can hit some trails and djs w/out having to baby the front end all the time, any recommendations? i was looking at the odyssey path and dirt paths, but haven't gone to see them in person yet.
