Good on you all !

I met a 50 year old skater last week and the rampworks, he flowed better than any of the kids but complained of bad joints later.

Kudos and hope to still be able to do that myself.

Harry Main was there last night too.

You are on this little rock for only a short period of time. NEVER sit there and consider doing something that active and fun looking. Do it, enjoy and spend time with your little one whilst you're doing it.
Yes it will hurt at times but you'll be pushing your boundaries of ability. Once you've pushed through it you'll improve and enjoy things even more. You'll also be able to keep up with your little one as well. hahaha


Sorry for Hijacking your thread Doyle. Sounds like a good bike. Is it a DJ/Street bike? top tube length?

Do it ! the time spent with the kids is more precious than anything.


My 7 year old just starting to fly out.

Its dad and lad stuff that you just can't get in the kitchen doing finger painting.

The WTP on sale here might be just the thing for you !

If you ever see an orange vw bay camper there its a friend of mine, he is in his more mature years (40's), he is friends with Harry Main too.

Doesnt live to far from you either. T:T:

Don't sell it - Ride it dude! :ILU:

Us thirty-odd year olds (39 to be exact) should be showing these 'old' fellas how it's done!!!!!!!!!!! LOL:

I'm a racer, but it's all good and they're all bikes, try the super-x track at Manchester velodrome if you don't fancy a skatepark!!! :eek: :D


There's alot of ex-bmx'ers ride with us too

Funny you mention the Mainiac, I Rhino stickered his Rangie last time.
He also left his lights on and flattened his battery.

Glad to see he is down to earth what with all that fame. Had a chat to him and he is a really nice chap.

That camper friend would't be shaun would it ?

Sorry if I offended anyone with the age comment ;), anyway I managed to swap a surfboard for a nice little racer so I think I will keep hold of it for now.
May even have cheeky blast on the skate park tomorrow.
Thanks for the inspiration guys. :ILU:

42 and I just brought a Long Board Skate board, look a complete idiot cos Im rubbish but my 6 year old son loves racing me around the block on his scooter.

Free bump - but keep it, £250 won't last you 5 minutes and doesn't really contribute to a good racer anyway.
