What the heck, how about an introduction

Ok, I'm basically a newbie here, so I might as well drop a small intro. Seems the polite thing to do.
My name's Bill, I'm 36 & have been riding BMX on & off since I was like 13 or something.
I'm nowhere near what I'd call a "good" rider, but my main goal is to have fun.
I don't post too much, but I'm always checking the various boards.
Anyways here's a couple links to my photobuckets albums. Some riding pics, and the various bikes I've owned over the years.

Hello Bill, normally I do the formal meet and greet in the Introductions forum, but that's ok, we can still welcome you to one of my favourite parts of Bike Forums--BMX.

I don't normally get to send many people this way, which is a shame, because this is a pretty nice crowd here (if you don't ask stupid punk questions ).

How many bikes have you currently got? You certainly have owned some fine looking bikes in the past.

And, where are you located? Anywhere near Virginia? KinetikBiker's got some really nice trails going out his way. Not to mention he could probably use some one to help dig .

Welcome to BF!

East Hill

Huh. Never even noticed the "Intro" section. I pretty much mostly read the BMX forums. Sorry 'bout that.
I'm in Minnesota, so it's unlikely I'll be any help to any trails in Virginia, sorry.
I currently have 4 bikes in rideable condition:
06 FBM PW Moto
early 90's S&M Widowmaker (STAY HUNGRY!)
Bianchi Pista (for commuting)
91 GT Richter 8.0 MTB redone BMX-style (again for commuting).
Then I have enough parts to build up another bike using any one of the following frames:
85 GT Performer
97 SE Floval Flyer
00 Kink Empire Rev B
01 Schwinn Mean Streets (Van Homan sig frame)
02 DBI Trail R Park
04 S&M Black Bike
I'm a bit of a collector/pack rat I guess....

Thanks, y'all. Dharma - yeah most of those pics were taken in MN. The outdoor park shots were in Rockford, Ill. The rest were around Mpls/St. Paul. Mostly at a schoolyard near my apt in St.Paul.
