I'd call that a better move!

I can only do the curb in front of my house.

Done that more than a few time.

Yesterday a bunch of kids were playing around on their old heavy BMX bikes trying to pop wheelies and stuff so we brought out the trials bikes to show them some cool stuff. They were flabbergasted when Ben busted out with the rear wheel hops and pretty impressed that I could do some decent wheelies.

I watched them ride around a bit and when one of the boys actually started trying to trackstand I finally relented and lit him ride my Monty. First thing out of his mouth was "Daaaaaang! This thing is LIGHT!"

His bike didn't have any brakes so he was very impressed with the stopping power on the Monty. I showed him how to do little endos and pick up the front wheel and then showed him a video on my iTouch of some good riders and he was amazed.

Another kid was jealous of the sprocket on my bike and when we explained that it made the bike really slow he didn't believe us so I challenged him to a race. Of course he won and I felt like I was going to die but at least I proved my point.

It was pretty fun to see all the kids playing around on their bikes.

Have fun Tony.

We have a 2 day moto trials this weekend and then 4 days moto camping next weekend so Durango didn't work with our schedule.

Is Danny really his nephew? I have heard that, but wasn't sure.

Maybe I should put a post in "Ask Baldy"?

I think he just jokes that everyone with the last name MacAskill is related somehow.

Tape a piece of foam to the stem, it will save countless body parts from serious potential harm. I stuck a piece on my mountain bike the first time I unclipped accidentally and slammed my chest unto the bars. I saw stars.

LOL! The last section I was called a five for rolling over the very end of the tape. It would have been a 2 but I got a 5, so I could have tied my nephew. I also took one really stupid dab near the end of a section. So I will try harder.
