    Hear hear!








    Now as for the poll thing:

    In general I like home-made ramps the most, mainly because I can't drive so I don't have the ability to go to skate parks, and I don't have a job so I don't have any urban stuff to ride around on. I've never grinded in my life (something that I plan to work on) so I can't say that I like that or not. I've made probably about three structurually sound ramps (all different sizes) as well as a fun box, grind rail (that is low to the ground) and a dirt-jump doubles. Out of those ramps are two eight-inch high wedges that I mostly use for landing ramps, and one two foot high launch ramp. The fun box is a little low to the ground, but we made it in a set to go with the landing wedges. It's (the fun box) four feet long, three feet wide, and eight inches high (like I mentioned earlier). I have a lot of fun on them and have learned a lot of new things from all of that stuff. I'm currently trying to get higher air off of that two-footer, and since it's four feet wide and (I think) eight feet long then I can almost use it as a mini half pipe. So yeah, I'd have to say home-made ramps and such.

    Learn to get along with, or ignore other people. As long as it's fun. Your helmet may one day save you from being the drooling kid in a wheelchair (no disrespect to those with disabilities, just trying to make a point). Also, you sometimes have to pay for the privilege of riding what someone else has spent their money to build. I'm sure it also includes some kind of liability insurance for the operators. By the way, there's concrete parks all over Australia, and they're free.

    I wish he would be banned, that attitude is not welcome here. But unfortunetly I haven't seen any evidence of any of the people owning these forums monitoring what people type, so I doubt he'll get banned.

    I like riding in the skate park. Ours is free, they don't mind bikes, and helmets aren't a law.
    Well, there's a sign that says bikes aren't allowed and you need to wear helmets and pads, but it's just part of the park, not a seperate place that's monitored or anything.

    Home made dirt jumps are pretty fun also.

    That is what I enjoy the most too. Mainly because I can't do stuff off of vert ramps and mini ramps (because I don't know how to) so skateparks aren't the top one.

    Yes, race track. You know, BMX? Racing?

    I really wish that when "freestyle" had started, oh, sometime before most readers of this forum were born, they had not related it to BMX. I have nothing against it at all, it's just that the tricksters seem to forget the roots of the sport, which is racing.

    I know what BMX is, it is racing. I just wasn't sure what you meant by 'track'. It wasn't very specific. And I think he just wanted those that are listed or else he would have put racing as an option. But I think that is because he doesn't race.

    Understood. I just find it odd to take a poll in a BMX forum about where you like to ride, and track is not listed as an option. Or trails for that matter.

    You'll notice there's very little in the BMX threads about racing. Which is ironic, as that's where it got it's start. That's where I got my start, and I just got back into racing. I have kids older than most of the ones that post here.

    Glad we got that cleared up. Sorry I didn't understand you.

    Yes, you're right queens. BMX tracks and riding on them would probably be considered 'racing', not 'track'.
