Think I'm done with BMX

I took such a long break that I completly suck at BMX, and I have no motivation to ride. It just dont seem to interest me any more. I still ride occasionally for short times just to dick around on my bike, but i just can't ride all day like i used to. My new interest is paintball.

I'm the complete opposite. I took a long break, and destroyed my body in the process of that break, and can't wait to get back on my bike.

I couldnt wait, but then when I got back on, it just wasnt the same. Then today I got a good deal on some paintball stuff froma friend at school. Going to go play somewhere Sunday, can't wait. Ive wanted to play paintball for so long but I couldnt afford it.

I've been fooling around on my bike and can't wait to get started. I always wanted to play paintball, but you could still do both. You probably aren't as good as you used to be, but it comes back very quickly.

What pisses me off more than anything is my lack of ability to manual. I used to be like the king of manuals, it was my favorite thing. Now I'm back to counting parking spaces, and it usually doesnt require counting on more than one hand.

Don't worry about it. They will come back with some practice. My manuals are completely shot too. Right now, I probably couldn't go more than one or two parking spaces.

Stop complaing about how you can't do the tricks you used to, and go out and re-learn them.

Paintball is lame in my opinion, real men would just use real guns.

If you think it's so lame, run around in a pair of shorts and a t-shirt and let me shoot you fifty times. I bet you'll change your opinion then.

Haha. So you are saying that real men are completely stupid and only live to die? (Tupac comes to mind with the "live to die" piece)

I chose airsoft instead of paintball because the guns are so realistic, but I got tired of the cheesedick military-wannabe guys who played it. So now I'm back to bikes.

for me its like
i took a break during the winter for wrestling
and now it seems like its just not that high on my priority list ever since i came back
maybe its lack of progression, maybe its not
i dunno, i like the people, its just not exciting like it used to be
maybe i just need a new place to ride?

Learn flips. You'll be re-excited. Or in a wheelchair...
