Poetry Comes In Many Forms

I spent my childhood on four wheels strapped to 7 layers of plywood. I thought I'd ride a skateboard until I died... or die riding a skateboard at the rate I was going. Alas, I grew up and staying in one piece became more important. Still, to this day, there are few things I enjoy as much as watching someone who is great on a skateboard. It makes me wanna jump right back on the board and try again. However, I'm quickly reminded that, as Toby Keith puts it, I ain't as good as I once was!

Along with riding a skateboard, I'd try almost anything on a bike, and I enjoy watching the greats on two wheels as well. To a lot of people who never got into these sports, it may seem like a childish thing to watch, but I believe if you watch this video of Inspired Bicycles' team rider Danny MacAskill, you'll begin to understand.
