It was at the bottom of a hill around a blind corner , had to bail by launcing my body over it , and my buddies were debating an abulance call when I came too , so I don't mind the powerbar theft if they were the ones going to call for help.... Plus I was throwing up afterwards , better they have the energy to ride for help . Long time ago tho' but come to think of it I was PISSED about my munchies being scoffed !

20/20 hindsight...

Hey, oddtodd, I forgot to ask you if you had to get a new bike, or if you just replaced the damaged parts where needed. I was just curious since it sounded like it got mangled up quite a bit. (the bike I mean)

The head tube is what made contact and mushroomed the cups and the forks bent on my Redline MX-2 (bought brand new back in the day...) So I went and mowed lawns all summer and ran thru my paper route to buy the newest model quadangle in the early 80's . The quad was sold to a collector/restorer in SanFrancisco when it turned 22 last year and time$ were tight . He may be a member of this site ! FB in SF you out there ? Still waiting for the pics bud !

I couldn't let my hobby die because of no bike to dream about riding so I just bought a Flatty (Mother of all Quadangles) last month and joined this site for advice .

When I got to SanFrancisco 11 years ago , I had the quad , a Redline Carrera , a Hutch Trickstar , a Dyno Pro Comp Team and bought a GT Feuler and an S+M Dirtbike . All are gone now(wish I kept the Trickstar) as well as a couple sets of Flite cranks , a set of standing gear forks , the original DX pedals , and onandonandon....

The internet can be a curse sometimes (dreaming instead of doing) , but glad I found this site to rekindle my desire . The young bucks here are supportive and the old school guys can relate .

Will be riding again late summer 2005 instead of just looking at my past in a bunch of boxes and daydreaming , glad you guys are here .

I'll dig out some old pictures for you guys to poke at .

My worst was actualy last week. I even got some pictures. Well you see I went off of this 8ft long double, (and I have cleared so many times before this)and while in the air I tryed to do a barspin and I rolled to the left and I slid in the dirt about 6 ft away from were my bike landed. My whole left side of the face was scraped all the way to my eye, both of my knees were scraped, (they were already scraped before this too) both of my arms were scraped, and I bit through the left side of my lip so I have a big mark on it. And everytime I open my mouth the scab breaks open. My friends said that when I landed, it looked like I was curled up in a ball and my they said they thought my arm was broken...but no bones were harmed. I dont remeber a thing after I hit the jump. All I remeber is hitting it and coming into my house with my dad trying to hold me up...and I had a minor concusion....REELY BAD HEADACHES!! But I have a feeling I will have a lot worst wrecks still to come...
