Got my first bike when I was 3, around 1986-87, started jumping and racing BMX at 5-6 years old. Then started riding smaller trails and park around
age 10, and went at it hard since then til I stopped around 2005. Girlfriends, and my job mostly took over my time and I faded away from the scene.
I've been wanting to get back in it the last 2 years but I hardly have any time, plus our trails got plowed a few years back.
Awesome. I had a later start than you, and I'm three years younger, but still a similar timeline. I have bum knees and haven't really rode at all
Sucks about the trails. They cut down an acre of trees around ours saying they were going to make a parking lot for the bmx track, but that was four
years ago and now we just have a big dusty lot and the jumps last about two days before they start falling apart.
I don't think I'll ever not have a bike though, even if I don't ride it
