Retro Video

I was only a kid of 51 when I made this video back in early 2007. I found this on myt old google video account, and uploaded it to youtube. I was still learning the more extreme aspects of riding at that time, jumping off whatever looked challenging on the street.

You should get clipless so you don't have to hold the seat during jumps. Sure, you'll fall a lot more, but it would "look" way cooler.

And, that's totally badass!

That was fun to watch, even tho stuff like that is so unacheivable for an un co ordinated klutz like me.
Heck, I'm amazed I can stay up on 2 wheels.

Great video! How long did it take your knees to get used to the bouncing?
