    Pics from the park.

    Yup, I finally got around to taking my brothers bike out for a little bit of a rip. Had my phototron machine with me and i thought i'd get some nice shots in. I'm sure some of you will know the significance.









    My brother loved the park.

    You know. I can't believe it's been that long already. It still seems like it was last week. DANGIT.

    I'm sure your brother was smiling at you while you were riding it.

    From a moderator's perspective, I see no problem with that, Crankshaft.

    From the bottom of my heart, and I'm sure I speak for all of us in this, your brother will be missed for as long as my mind functions sufficiently to remember him

    Those are some really good shots. They capture a lot of emotion too. It's sad just looking at them.
