    Old and out of shape....

    So...after a nice sushi dinner with the family -1 5yr old my older son and I decide to go on a ride.
    To set the tone...dinner was 2 hours with lots of good food, beer and saki.

    I get home, change into some shorts and a hoody and we're off. We take our usual route through the neighborhood. We get to the school and I begin to practice my skids. Being the n00b that I am, I pick up a little speed (after a few, in my mind successful skids) and lean over attempt to lock it up when all of the sudden I eat shart into the grass, feet still in the straps.

    My son is laughing his ars off...saying you got pwned old man. I throw the standard parental rebuttal..you're grounded as I laughed my ars off...

    This threw me back to the days of masonite burns while trying to stick the new trick at the skate park.
    A little Bactine and couple more beers and it's all good! Good time...good times.

    *cheers*

    Ride Safe!

    If I told my dad he got pwned, he would have no idea what I was saying. Much less could he teach me to skid.

    Get in shape. Youre not too old if you can crash like that and get up.

    Ya! Don't be too hard on yourself.

    P.S. Deathhare, whenever I see your sig, I click the link, even though I've clicked it a hundred times now. Such a nice frame, makes my mouth water. Too bad I'll never be able to afford one.

    That is awesome riding with your son! Funny story. I can't wait to do that, even though my son is 2 but when the times comes I will be ready no matter how old I am.

    My dad is big on road cycling. He used to take me for rides that were 20+ miles at inane times in the morning when I was a pre-teen. I wish he still did that. I'm gonna teach him to ride fixed!

    You must be the coolest dad ever.
