Hiya, just joined the forum. My names Mark, but everyone calls me Skid. Loved bmx's since I saw ET as a kid. First bmx I had was a Falcon Pro Beta S, my Mum and Dad bought it for me after making me promise I would ride it as they thought 14 was a bit old to riding a bike that small
Other bikes I've had include an IronHorse Dirt Burner, weighed an absolute ton.
Chrome Raleigh Burner (round tube not oval)
Red Raleigh Burner (Oval Tubing)
And a couple of unknown f+f that I built up.
Stopped riding when I got to 20, as I felt "Too Old to riding a bike that small"
Then mid 90's I got the bug again, bought a black Dyno Zone.
Sold it to my brother when I fell in love with the GT Tour, and bought a Tour 2. Rode the shit out of it, couldn't break it, it broke me. I slipped coming out of the top of a 9 foot steel 1/4 pipe. Landed on the flat, on the front wheel, and broke my elbow, didn't even buckle the bloody wheel. Sold the bike not long after as I didn't feel comfortable riding it afterwards.
And that was that, until...
The bloody bug bit me again when I was talking to one of my brothers about his Mountain Bike. I told him he should have bought a GT, and that night I found myself looking on ebay for a new bmx.
Picking it up tomorrow, a chrome 2001 GT Grind.
