Gunz goes to lots of places because he likes to talk about the thing in which he loves (BMX). Unfortunately, no one has been here.

Apparently, I've got plenty of time to be here now. The doctor said another 2-3 weeks before I can get back on my bike for risk of a small fracture after surgery. I'm already going insane.

The newbs are starting to piss me off, plus the fact that I haven't been able to ride hard for a while has made me lose a bit of interest.

I've been spending lots of time lurking in Classic and Vintage learning.

Aside from the two videos I've posted.

edit: Although I suppose that you could say that that doesn't really have anything to do with reading.

I haven't been riding my bike (except commuting) for the past few days cause I twisted (or sprained or whatever) my ankle while working on the decade.

I'll need to make sure I don't re-injure myself cause I'm going to start playing flag football this fall.

Flag football is the worst excuse for football. I can't stand it. If you want to play football, you have to play the right way.

Am I considered a "noob' if I was into BMX before most of you were ever born?

Would I still be considered a "noob" if I could hand you your arse at a BMX track? (Considering that I am 41 years old)

Now don't assume the worst. How about I say I wanna play flag football instead of tackle so I can save my energy and stuff for BMX? Happy?

With the exception of beermans videos, yes.

Join bikeguide and we can all read decent threads and laugh at the dumb ones about girls jeans and who can drill more holes and mod their bikes more! It's actually not too bad, and at least people actually post and aren't 'n00bs'...
