Right on, man. We should get out on the bikes sometime soon. We'll be down past your hood at Jawbone this weekend, with Al and the whole crew.

Nice work. I've been watching your progress on facebook.

I think I heard that you can back flip a bmx bike, true?

BTW....have you taken any hard falls? A few weeks after you claimed your 100 footer, I cleared a 92 footer at the track. I'm feeling pretty accomplished for that, but I feel like my time is coming for an ego check.

Ricky- it looks like your wearing a leat neck brace. If you are your a smart man. I saw one save a friend of mine from breaking his neck a couple months back. the piece that runs down the back broke a couple of his upper back ribs but better than a broken neck.

Don't know if you've talked to Kyle out at wolf lately but he just ordered a system 2 like 2 weeks ago. It sounds like you might be out there a good amount this year from talking to kyle. it should make for a good season out there.

I just bought a Leatt last week. Tried on both the Alpine Star and the Leatt back and forth for an hour.

The piece you described on the back that caused damage....on the Alpine Star brace, it's designed to break away with a certain amount of impact. But it felt cheap to me.

I noticed that same thing on the Alpine Star brace. The Leatt just feels strong and like its really going to work.

J-Rod- Last year at spring ride Ho JO and his wife brought their bikes up last year and we all went riding up on this trail area about Bass Lake. I have a cabin up there so I use to ride up there a lot but mainly ride tracks now. I'm not sure if we're going to do it again this year but if we do you should bring your bike up. Jo left his at my cabin last year for the weekend. You can to if you want.

thanks guys for the comments and support. i dont have any whip pics not quite getting those all crazy style. i can do a heel clicker and a no footed can, nac nac with a little few variations of those and workin on a cliff hanger..my main goal is a back flip trying to get my connections going down south. here is the pic of my doing a back flip on a bmx. its on a poster in my house so not the best quality.

yes im wearing a leatt, the best purchase i have made for riding my dirtbike. i feel a lot safer jumping.

J-Rod we were supposed to go out to jawbone but one of my friends passed and there is a get together this weekend to raise money. next time though for sure. and about the jumping i have had a few crashes in my day ended up in the hospital a few times but didnt stop me.

greatest thing to happen since full face helmets.

Leatt reduces the chance of a neck break by catching your head/helmet and limiting travel. My neck has already been broken once, so I figure I'm not getting a second chance lol.

Sick shot RG.

I had to skip the Jawbone trip too. I'd love to get the chance to ride bikes with you though.

Ryan, I have so much to worry about at Spring Ride. I would LOVE to take that ride, but I just have too much going on that weekend.
