Well, i rode a bmx styled bike since i was in second grade. then the skate park opened up and i skated there. i'd ride my bike down everyday in like 6th grade and once i broke my board and started riding my bike. never bought a new skateboard either. well i did, i actually had fun riding it but i just lost interest after like 3 weeks and sold it.

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

started riding 1981ish here.
But in 1982 I got my first BMX PLUS magazine from my grandmother & started to get really into it seriously. Christmas '83(maybe '84) IIRC my friend got a "General Lee"( cannot remember who made it, but it was a sweet bike Orange/ black letters) so I bought a Haro freestyler, so I could keep up with him. I think I originally had a bastardized Mongoose.

Back then we didnt have VIDEO's, or internet(WTF is a computer?) to tell us who to like. We had to be lucky to catch some stuff on TV(if we were not kicked out of the house & told to go outside & play. In the house during the weekend..You lazy ass...get outside), or in magazines.

If we broke something, we only had our LBS to get parts from. No online stores to order parts, no forums to ask opinions, we actually had to do things ourselves & ask REAL friends for opinions. Because they were the ones we needed to be on par with, not the rest of the world.

the first thing that made me want to ride bmx, was a long time ago wen i lived in california, i saw this guy from in the back seat of our car. he was ripping down the sidewalk, cut right in front of my dad driving and he bunnyhopped over this thing in the road which was like a 2 jersey barrier. i thought it was the sickest thing id ever seen outside the x games. not too long after i started jumping my bike and tried to figure out how he bunnyhopped. ( i didnt even know it was called a bunnyhop back then.)
