Dude you didnt seem to scared when you knee slide into the curb and did a front flip over the sidewalk just missing the main water valve at Blackhill doing 40mph. I figured after that you would be ready to charge anything.

Simon
Since your not working why dont you come hang out with SSS and ride, We are all gettin pretty fast now so you wont get bored waiting for us to get to the end of the course. Looking back this year you would have smoked at Catalina TS.

Got a Smoke?

Arab,

I've always got a smoke. It's very tempting to come out to OC for a while, but what would I do all day. All you guys are at work all day.

I'd end up hanging around with Nick at Vinyl Solutions all day waiting for some slalomers to get off work.

What the weather like?

A R A B-

Why do you think I'm so scared of high speeds now? Dude, I wiped out so bad my first day at BlackHole that I'm frickin' sketched for life. I think I'm afraid of JPL too even though I have not been there yet. I just don't want to do a repeat performance and eat crap in front of everybody-plus, I gotta go to work from 8 to 5 and stand around in nice clothes and gay shoes. If I'm all thrashed from high speed slaloming, they'll really think I'm juvenile even more than they do already.

I was super scared that night at BlackHole-I was just trying not to show it by blowing it off and making it seem like I was cool or something. You should have seen the even worse slam I took at the Cemetery running one of Evans' super fast tight offset courses-I almost saw GOD for sure!

Why do you think I'm sooooo scared ti crash now? Dude, I'm not looking forward to the next BIG accident that is heading my way. BlackHole skaetched me out bigtime and Evans' super tight offset course at the Cemetery nearly killed me. What are guys trying to do to me?

Yeah man, I know your feeling. I definately have a fear of ramps after my crash at RedBull. I always wanted to learn to skate mini-ramps and bowls, but now I am too scared to even think about dropping into a ramp or going down a roll in.

Richy, you have no problem with #'s 1,2,3 and 5 and I dont see any need for improvement there, But #4 you need some work on! LOTS! I cant be sitting on the steps of the ramp telling you when to go all the time.
