BMX Flashback

My youngest son has recently taken a real interest in BMX. It's made me reflect a lot on being a kid. I spent countless hours perfecting this sort of stuff while still put the work in to improve as a racer. Pretty good times.

While riding with my son this weekend it occurred to me that I've been riding BMX off and on for 40 years now. Unbelievable.  If my son even has a fraction of the fun I did doing it, it's well worth the money/time required to support him.

It's absolutely amazing how many Generation X and younger vintage motorcycle guys I meet that have a BMX background. I believe it breeds the sense of freedom two wheels can provide and fosters a passion for tinkering and improving a bike that that to some extent defines your individualism.
