I keep mine in the toilet. Any one brave enough to go in there and try and take my Kizz after one of my banging shits deserves it.

Old fucks. LOL. Like you ain't gonna reach that age too. Mind you, with the brain power on display you might not make it. One can only hope.

The Black Sheep. I was watching an old BYJ Hastings video the other day and it was all fuzzy and shit like the 90s. Then I saw someone come through the jumps and I knew it was him. Sooooo smooth. Him and Robbie made trails look like art.

Oh it was. I rode tons of street back in the 90s in London, but we had no parks. It was "ride what you can find" with the closest being South Bank. At 46 I decided to give bowls a try lmao. It didn't end well. I didn't really figure about the being 20 ... more »

Added reply in a thread Hey Paul, you’ve got competition - do I have the shortest bars? 4/2/2021 4:19 PM
