Apparently you have never been to the Ocean City NJ boardwalk... The Shoobies wear knee high socks with shorts AND sandals.

Oh yeah the socks are usually black too

For those with a backyard lay out, do you ever trailer your bikes to other riding area?

I starting clearing out a section of my back yard about 6 months ago, and placing some logs and rocks around, and now find myself only riding at home. I know for sure I am able to log more trial riding hours having my own little section.
Well yeah. The goal is to ride every day, but any place gets stale. I go once a week an hour to a spot , and once a month somewhere between 100 and 1000 miles to ride with others of like mind. We're waiting for rain to wet down our homeland, so I'm riding at home this morning and this month.

That is the beauty of "home/backyard setups" and yeah you get spoiled, BORED of same old same ol', then eventually drive 600 miles to a fun place like Sipapu NM, and ride with some of the neatest friends I have ever met, online or offline lol.

But what I love is, gas the damn thing up, even when you just have 5 minutes before dinner, I ride. or whatever, which is priceless.

5 years so far, no letter yet. I don't complain about my neighbors, they don't complain about me.
The general rule around here is if you keep it under 6' (height of the block wall) you can do anything you like.
I was really surprised I didn't get anything when I had the backhoe in the backyard for a weekend. That thing could be seen from blocks away.

But if I let a weed grow in the front yard...

The fun one, next year I will be applying for an exemption to the rules. Going to ask for permission to put an ocean container in the side yard. Neighbors already verbally agreed. If the HOA complains too much, I can always point out that the HOA office is in violation of their own rules. Can't rent a house out as a business office. They have their business office in a house inside the sub division
I really need it to open up the garage space.

I have this, but I don't think The Wife would appreciate my hammering it with a trials bike. Plus, it'd prolly start coming apart pretty quick.

If you ask for permission, it will never happen.

Put some ribbon down and you won't be able to resist.

That's what mine is suppose to look like. Currently under construction (see post #190). Until then it is fair game except for the teaser mini waterfall that is already done.

It's been under construction for 5 years now. Actually went backwards when the freeze took out most of the trees a couple years ago.

Someday I hope mine looks as good as yours. Probably just before I sell the house.
