I rode a Scorcher as a kid.. my friends would actually marvel at my ability to survive wicked stunts/wrecks unscathed .. scary stuff when I think back to those days.

This is no joke though.. my best friend to this day almost died when he was 6 when he crashed head first trying a homemade ramp jump... I remember my older brother telling me that the doctors told his parents that he had so much swelling that the prognosis was not good. He made a full recover and might be the biggest risk taker I've ever known..

Also one of my other mates used to race for Redline bmx which meant all his bike gear was free.Nothing makes you more jealous as a kid than to have a friend with all the best gear,only to know he was getting for free.

Oh my goodness! I have seen that one!

Very good introduction. Thanks for putting up the link, oneyedwilly.

By the way, if you should like to know where I'm from, then read the Global Thermonuclear Rewind thread. [Smile] [Big Grin] [Wink]
