It's finally warmish in PA today but there is still snow covering most of the good spots, but it was still a blast.

What I observed

My legs are out of shape big time
I apparently lost all manual balance
Profile Elites are like every other hub riding fakie, and almost too loud
The local kids are epic shit heads now, all I heard was how much does everything cost, what does it weigh, what tricks can you do, can you buy me smokes, blah blah blah. None of them even rode, just asked me stupid questions all day.
30/9 is the best gear ratio alive
Re-learning everything at 27 is gonna be tough
I had a blast

Thats awesome dude. If you don't like that group, make the trip over here, we got a good scene in Pittsburgh. It's a good time up here. Go to the parks or something.

Glad I'm not the only one who hates most of the riders around me. The only ones that are fun anymore are like 15 or 16... which sounds creepy as fuck but whatever. The rest just sit there and brag about how high/drunk they got last weekend.

Right? I like beers as much as the next guy, but it is relentless anymore. I never realized kids care so much about what you ride anymore. I'd leave and they'd follow me spot to spot haha.

Yeah, i always try to tell the kids that it's not about what you ride, it's how well you ride it. There are dudes i know that kill it on wal mart bikes while others with a 1200$ bike can barely three.

Word, my birthday is on June 17th haha. I'm thinking the first week of June. It would be sweet to have a local show us around.

We are gonna hit state college in 2 or 3 weeks of you are interested. I went to school there so I know where to go, plus you won't be able to handle the amount of chicks walking around.

Congrats on getting back and riding. I just started to ride again after 11 years so I am relearning everything. Never did street or park back in my day so I am learning from the ground up, along with my son. It's fun and great exercise lol. But right on and have fun man.

Around here it's that age group that is nothing but shitheads. Seriously.

The 3 dudes that are over 18 are the only ones to ride with. The kids just ask what parts, what they cost, what they weigh, if you will sell them for like 5 bucks regardless of what they cost.

Oh and they offer to buy parts when they don't have money.

"What are you asking for it?"

20 bucks.

"How about 5?"

No.

"Ok, 20 is fine. I'll let you know when I have money."

You don't have it now? Why the hell are you trying to buy it when you can't?

"Well you can hold it for me."

No.

"Why not? I'm gonna buy it soon."

Because you don't have the money.

"Well you could let me ride it and I will pay later."

No. Go away.
