    Found an old picture! When I really started MTB

    This pic is from late 92-93. Camp pendelton. We had just got back in the states after 2 Yrs I think. On ship, Deployed, MAG TAF alert ( thats Marine, Air, Ground, Task alert: = locked on base) or stuff like that. Free time was up to uncle sam. So I finally had free time and bought this bike. It was a KHS Montana sport. I rode this bitch all over pendelton. Im sure this was before the weed patch/ SCST as it is now. That,........... thinking back......... is when I fell stupid for this sport

    All I did was make a choice. Nothing more nothing less. Thank you BTW. Yes, I was wearing a brain pot. Its a choice, not a guaranteed respect card!

    I am trying to dig up an old one of me, but in the process came across this one of my little guy Ryan at age 3, the day he got his training wheels taken off.. this is from Feb of 2007.. where does the time go? I love the little Shark bike from Toys R Us with the 12 inch wheels..

    Here is one of me that I found from around 1997. This was taken at "Fun Zone" in Palos Verdes before the houses were built. Can't believe I though it was OK to jump a 1995 Trek 8700 (bonded carbon) with a set of SPIN wheels. :?:

    Is this in the Philippines? They already opened a nice biking/hiking trail there. I was able to ride there twice 5 years ago.

    6 years old 1974.....I think about 3 weeks later I swapped out seat and the bars to really get that little Schwinn morphed into a BMX bike. Now proraptor can see that at one time I actually tried to jump a bike. There were stitches under that bandaid.
