    First Crash!

    Well today I had my first crash.
    Phone started ringing so I checked who it was calling, right at that moment I was one handed, the worst part of the trail came up, My front tire went down into the hole, when went to grab the handle bars, my phone hit the front brake... that finished me off Over the bars I went, Thank god my helment covers my four-head good, its all chewed up, I landed on my phone also, nextels are like bricks thankfully. My back also ate my seat, and my legs ate the pedals and frame lol.


    It's all good.

    What was you guys' first crash?

    I know this is obvious in retrospect, but don't answer your phone while you are riding.

    Congratulations!! You are officially initiated!

    Now which of your four heads did the helmet cover?

    When my cell phone rings and I'm riding I won't even answer it even if I was off the bike fixing a flat.

    No Im not wanted to any more... I am now I have... Just need the shoes LOL.
    I thought it might of been important, and I'm still learning the trail, I forgot that the hardest, roughest part of the trail was next.

    Sadly, I broke my camera a few days ago already... no pics.


    lets see, My helment protected, sadly the crazy, stupid head =)
    the smart one is a little beatup =p

    Yea if thats all I had to do to get initiated, then I'm happy lol.
    I'm glad my Hydra Pack didn't explode also, because after the seat bashed my back, it landed on it, lol

    First time on a REAL trail, some guy came up behind me. Not wanting to let him pass, I sped up to about 150% my normal pace. Hit a log payramid and went flying into a rock garden.

    The depth of experience ("first crash" & "First time on a REAL trail...about a year ago") on display is simply stunning.

    I'm sorry.

    Obviously you were sent here to be better me. Excuse me while I change the date at which I began riding.

    I have been riding since 1897, and actually invented the mountain bike.


    As indescribable as your post is, it can almost be mated with "elitist".

    Too many crashes too long ago to remember the first. The worst one was losing my eye in '98.

    You went over two months without a crash. I'm lucky to go two rides.
