Riding is one of the most enjoyable thing that you can ever do. It's real. It's no loger buzzing around on your bmx around your local neighborhood. No more bandaids and detol. Riding is dangerous. Riding is deadly. No longer can you hope that everything will be ok if you follow the rules. Too many people get hurt, too many people are too lucky and too many people arn't. Don't push it, Dont push your luck. One day it will end in tears. Straighten up and ride right. There is a time and a place. There are a lot of crazies out there. Be the best you can be, Trust nobody. Patience is essential. Learn it now, dont figure it out after a couple of months figure it out before you get your L's. It may be too late if you don't. Don't think about how much it hurts, think about how much it hurts the people around you. Some of us are the best riders in the world, but still end up in trouble. Some of us arn't good riders, but we need to realise it sooner rather than later. Be smart, know your limits, know everybody elses.
