Park Ridge + BMX = heaven

Im talking about that newly completed 15 step handrail in downtown park ridge.

I gotta hit that sweet rail before that city knobs it up.

far as I know no one has hit this yet.

that means I can be the first.

I can bunny hop 2 ft consistently.
I love riding street.
I have been searching for that 'perfect rail' for the past 13 years.
and now here it is right in front of my face.

thats the good news, the bad news is


I got a cheap dyno with 3/8 axles. and no pegs.
and even if I did have pegs, it would only take one session to render my 3/8 axles fubar.

but for this beautiful handrail, its all worth it.

cause Im the kind of person that will go all out.

I wonder if there is anyone one this forum who knows what im talking about.
I also wonder if there is anyone who wants to photograph me trying to attempt such a beautiful feat.

I'd rather video it for a chance at winning $10,000 on "America's Funniest Home Videos" in the event of an unexpected outcome.

I would love to get video taped doing a stunt. I got some rollerblades too, but I dont trust myself as much on the blades as I do on a bike.

Some of the news crews that are there covering the story of the Maine East teacher arrested for sexually abusing a former student might film you. I'm sure the teacher would like some other story to distract the news media now.

Im sorry to hear about that maine east teacher getting in trouble. It doesnt matter what is said on tv, what he needs is a good lawyer. If he could get the same lawyers that R. Kelly had, he might stand a chance. I dont know why the student waited until after graduation to press charges. I have heard of someone going all the way through law school and after he passed the bar He filed charges against a priest that abused him when he was a boy and he won. I would never go through that much trouble to send someone to jail, as long as I can live my life in peace thats all that matters. However, if I can find a way to make money off of telling the truth about how corrupt some people are and/or what I have been put through, then thats another story.


but as far as the handrail goes, you could just drive through downtown Park Ridge and you wont miss it. or you could just wait till july and I will post a pic of it.... (hopefully with me on it!)

.

I dont know about you, but im going to do my best to make the most out of this summer.

p.s. I wish all of you a kick ass fourth of july.
