First post!



That's just freaking insane, and way cool. I'd love to do that---if I had the reflexes, the coordination, and a naive belief in my own invulnerability.

I wish the free-stylers would break off from the X Games. Every time I see 30 yr olds doing tricks on BMX bikes or skateboards, I always have the same reaction. I think "Why don't these loosers get a life?". But when I see the free-stylers in action, I am in awe.



I grew up riding dirt bikes, but just being that high in the air on a bike would scare the S**T out of me, and I can't imagine the tricks. These guys are in a different league than any other riders.



I rode BMX bikes and skateboards too when I was a kid. But that stuff is made for kids. Free-style is for moto gods!

Huh? Besides the fact that you can see BMX, skateboard, and motoX competitions on their own, how can you say doing tricks on a dirt bike is better than doing tricks on a BMX bike? Athleticism, dedication, bravery, and a dash of stupiditiy are common to both.

I'd rather see you do a Fred Flintstone, but I'd pay my $29.95 pay-per-view either way.

WHoop-de-doo....I can't wait for my subscription to this piece of $hit to end..I can't believe a e-mag could NOT be worth 1 dollar a month but here it is. Hey guys! Have you ever read any of the British Mags? They talk about MOTORCYCLES! GEAR! TIRES! RIDING TECHNIQUES! OLD BIKES THAT MAKE GOOD NEW BIKES! HELMET COMPAROS! Ya know stuff someone who actually rides cares about! Geez at the very least open up a copy of "RIDE" or "BIKE" or heck even "CYCLEWORLD", geez even "AMERICAN IRON" and look at what THEY write about...Man has the writing here ever gone down hill....Maybe just take a Dam trip somewhere and write about it..I don't mean some poser/merchandise show disguised as a "rally"..post a good road or two..maybe even GASP one on the "other" coast...I mean I pay 7-8 bucks for some of these british mags A MONTH! It's a rip-off but at least theres something worth looking at...in fact I consider it worth it because the mags there are so good most of the stuff in there is worth referring back to.....ok I had my vent, consider me non-renewed in 199 days.....

As a Navy pilot once commented about airshows, "Once you seen one plane go 'wiz-a-wiz-a-wiz', you've seen them all." I have similar sentiments about FX, except for Deegan's mindbending 360, which I lucked in to seeing while channel surfing.
