Not 16 Anymore

I took Vaughn to a birthday at a skate park today. I wasn't too stoked to be there initially because I really wanted to get my '51 back together today. I couldn't take it just watching... and ended up fetching my 24" BMX bike. It felt really good to ride. I haven't been on a bike in literally years. Vaughn's 6 year old friends were pretty entertained by my now pathetic riding.

Unfortunately I slipped on some ramp decking and went down pretty hard, silly mistake. Result, I sprained my left wrist well and good. I continued to cruise around until the party ended but I was pretty sore once I got home. Here's the damn ramp I slipped on.

I was still pretty motivated to get the '51 back in one piece when I got home. Turning wrenches and holding parts together didn't improve matters. By the time it was in one piece and running I couldn't even pull the clutch. I'm a dumbass. It was fun. Holy crap I sucked though.

sounds like something I would do. My bmx's only use now is a chariot to have my dog Luka pull me with to get him some exercise.
