  8. When I was a kid, there were railroad ties marking the parameters of my folks' flower and shrub beds…..so, I used to try to side hop on to the ties, ride them for a ways (around bends and stuff), then try to side hop off….. From the outside, it was a kid practicing basics but in my head, I was 'doing trials riding' on 'my Gasgas' hahaha

  9. I used to BMX many years ago and this stuff was trial and error as a kid. It’s sad how we need all this stuff explained to us as adults.
