Pedals and upgraded Brakes on order...

Talk to Mike about brakes. He only uses the front ones though.  :funny:
I would have been better off if I had a bike with no pedals.

What about the training wheels?

What I really needed was wheelie bars.

And here I thought you went over the bars and onto your head … That's a whole different kind of stupid. BTW, How's your neck?

Can I change my story?  I'd like one that makes me look less stupid.  So I was flying up this hill like an unstoppable mad man when out of nowhere came this deer and just took me out... I mean, my middle name is David. 

But no, it wasn't a big hill either.  It was pretty sad.  My neck isn't 100% yet but I have full mobility.  It's not going up in to my head or down between my shoulder blades anymore.  So that's progress.

Mike, you'll have to make it up to Canada one day. I'll take you on some fun downhill trails!

Ha! If my buddies 5 y/o can ride a couple of the trails, I think you could too. Ya just have to remember which brake is for the front.

Ouch.  To think a 5 year old might possibly be better than me. 

And damnit, Tom.  You have people thinking I don't know which brake is which.  That I know, even though it's opposite the four wheeler.

Four wheelers got brakes?  :drive:

To be honest, I think you would be surprised at what some kids hit in the Whistler bike park.

Man, I remember being young, talking anywhere between 6 and 12 probably, and not being afraid of anything.  "What?  Yeah I'll hit that jump.  Let me get more speed first though." Now?  I might walk up it but I'll be thinking the whole time, I hope I don't roll and ankle.  Somewhere in that age range, I actually broke my bike in half.  Snapped both tubes right off at the neck.

Been there, done that. That's partially why I learned how to repair bikes - which eventually became my first paying job. And before you say it, yes, they had bicycles way back then!

I know that I'm not as brave as I was in my younger days. I was probably the worst in my early teenage years, did some stupid stuff but not broken bones.

Tom isn't that Old, he was at least ripping around on a big wheel...
