Re: The 1970's

At the age of 5, I tried to run away from home by pedaling away in my Big Wheel. Fortunately, my oldest brother was on the scene and caught me about 4 houses down the sidewalk from my house.

Why was I running away from home?

Because I got spanked for going beyond my 2 house travel limit on my Big Wheel. You see, to me such draconian rules was like living in the USSR. So the Big Wheel represents defiance and the renegade within me.

Oh yeah, we all built 'ramps', but how many of us got 'air' like that kid? I'm impressed, .

Brother you live by the same rule I live by: The Constitution does not grant us rights, rights are natural. The Constitution is a restraining order against tyranny.

Re: The 1970's

I had that poster, my brothers friend drew a ring around the nipple. Had to take it down after that, Dad liked it my Mother did not. A 5 tire ramp and a sheet of flimsy plywood can cause a broken arm, just ask me and my Mr. America bike with the wide slick. The one with a left handle bar missing from the 5 tire ramp, but those days were some of my favorite.

I emigrated to the States in 1978. They only had Schwinn "paperboy" bikes back then. And I used to get air like that kid, even with a basket mounted on the front.

Schwinn? What were you, rich?

Introducing the 1978 Western Auto Western-Flyer BMX with adjustable Mono Shock! She had a seat that was soft like a loaf of bread!
