    i would have to say that my best bmx memory was when i got my second bike. My first bike was a walmart schwinn and got me rollin. but after that thing hit the dust some lake jumping put it to bed. My parent aren't ever up for me spending mor than 50 bucks for a bike, but i found my options. i went to my local shop and asked if they had anything in the back i could take off their hand. luckily they did. i walked out of there with an old robinson race bike. i kept that rusty old piece of junk leaning against my bed every night for the next week. that feeling of having a real bmx bike never felt so good.

    I was just 10 years old and my mom and dad decided to buy me my first BMX. I thought it was just a dopey bike at first but then as I mastered it throughout that year, I was jumping up to ride. I got many bumps and bruises from that good old BMX and still have it today for my own son. Now I can show my son everything I learned down the road and allow him to discover new ways of breaking in his BMX just like I did. Of course, with bumps and bruises to be expected. ROCK on BMXERS!!!

    the funnest time i have ever had on my bike was two years ago me and two buds went to the dew tour in orlando and stayed the whole weekend with no hotel not a enough money for food but we didnt care we watched the pros during the day and rode street at night till 4 in the morning meeting a bunch of new people that were wasted coming out of the clubs and two chicks fighting and the boyfriends just stand there like nothing was happening and watching a crack head steal a fake tree from outside a building and run down the street with it and riding with some locals and then riding with some guys from england. but most of all just knowing that i would have never had these kind of experiences if i didnt start riding a bike and would not be were im at now in my life with out bmx

    my all time favorite memory of bmx is when i had just built my bike and that night at midnight-ish, my cousin and i decide to go ride the back yard trail he had... then we built a new jump, it was a four foot kicker right at the top of a ten foot wall that was above his drive way, and we built a 5 foot tall landing about 25 feet out in the drive way. my cousin trys a couple of times first while im tryin to get stoked to do it. hes landing it almost perfect after 2 or 3 times... then me trying to be a bad ass i try to do a tail whip over it first try... bad idea, i came down mid-whip let go of the bike and land with my hand under my back, snap, i broke my left wrist had 2 pins in it... but that was by far my favorite bmx memory because i remember being so stoked about that jump and then a week or two after getting my cast off, i could clear it and do 360's over it, i never tried the t-whip again tho.

    my most favorite memorable moment of me bmx'ing is when i was like 8-9years old and you know how everyone when there young isnt the brightest as they should be. So one day i wake up everyday at 9am and go ride my bike outside i rode my small one, and so my friends said to me because they always messed with me they said " in order to be in are krew you have to ride down the grassy hill. Me being stupid i said ok ok then i went home got my helmet just in case haha. when im going down it half way i see a metal bar sticking out and me being stupid not checking i hit it and then i like do a front flip and flew into the fense but lucky i was wearing my helmet. next day i gave my cool red little bike to my brother to give to his girlfriends little brother for his birthday so he could get laid haha!!!!

    my favorite memory of bmx happened about four months ago when i finally finished the beach and peach trails in jacksonville florida. in 2005 i had a bad wreck and cant ride anymore. i love bmx soo much and wanted to stay in the sport that the only way i was able to do so is to shoot photography and build trails for all my boys to ride. i had been digging my trails everyday for 2 months by myself till i finished about four months ago. the day when all the jumps were primed and ready to go i had a jam and bbq with everyone. being able to watch all of them ride the jumps that i built with my injury was soo rewarding and it kind of felt almost like i had been riding them myself. you know that feeling when you try a new trick over and over and crash a bunch of times and get so upset to pull it perfect the next try. thats kind of how it felt to be able to create a wonderland for my boys. every one always asks me why i build them when i cant ride? my answer is the love of bmx and the fact that because of that, i am the staple for bmx dirt jumping in jacksonville florida. without me there wouldnt be any trails and my friends appreciate that. i simply love bmx and the whole culture that it created inside me. THANK YOU BMX.....

    well my fav BMX memory is when i went to see my older brother compete in a bmx competition. while competing in the third and final round he ended up falling off his bike mid-air. he broke a couple fingers doing so but finished the round anyway and ended up coming in 2cd place overall. i look up to my brother beause he commited himself to finish the competition even though i know he was in a lot of pain.

    Favorite BMX memory would have to be when all my buddies got together at the local park and had a mini jam. No film, No photos just straight up shredding and a good old time. Learning Turndowns, bars, and t-bogs was also friggin awesome. Now I have 2 herniated discs in my back and I've been out for a couple months. . . Hopefully I can get healed up to get shreddin again. .

    My favorite BMX moment will always be spending a whole night riding around town with a couple of friends, two of the four of us were going into the military (I was not one of them) so we figured this was the best way to see the guys off. We hit all of our normal spots and tried a few new ones, some tricks were hit and a lot were missed, we even went through a whole disposable camera taking photos. In fact, since we knew most of the town's officers we never got hassled it made the night even better because that meant more riding.
    Since that time we've all moved on to different things; my pals have survived their times in the service but we don't see each other much now and we don't get together to ride anymore, but BMX brought us together and that one night of riding made all the crashes, cuts, and bruises well worth the effort.

    My fondest BMX memory took place during the summer of 2003. Up until that point, I was playing Football (American's refer to as Soccer) at the collegiate level. I had ridden BMX years prior to attending the university, and was requested by my coach to sign an agreement not to participate in any other sport disruptive to my scholarship at the school. Adhering to his request and in full recognition of my education, I sadly parted ways with the sport until the season was over. That season of football however, would be my last. After experiencing the tarnished image of organized sports for final time, I commuted back home, where a good friend of mine and a long standing member of the BMX community was waiting. Bike-less and rusted, he lent me an extra set of wheels to accompany him on the trails. Needless to say, after prolonged distance from BMX, my skills were less than perfect. The next thing I knew, I overcompensated my speed, and was thrown over the bars, only to lie bloody and battered within the dirt. My friend rushed over in aid, only to find me laughing hysterically. After asking me if I was ok, I simply replied to him, "I'm just happy to be back on a bike". Four large permanent scars later have left with me with a consistent reminder of what passion I hold for BMX. Although my endorphins ran high to subdue the pain, it's a constant reminder of how human I really was, and as long as I was to remain on this earth as such, I knew that BMX would always run its within the life blood. I have ridden ever since that day, and will continue to do so from here on out and into that big quarter pipe in the sky.

    My Favorite BMX Memory
    is when my me and my freind saw this sweet 10 stair and we were going to bar down it and he set up to film it and went down barred it and the lady came out screaming and she threw a APPLE and said get the hell out. I was like what the heck and then some old granpa came out and we booked it.
