"Just a little piece of history repeating..."
inspired by his day at Dirt Quake, Caspar, my oldest boy wanted some dirt bike action under his belt. By bonkers happenstance soon after whilst unpacking one of those chaotically random boxes that only ever happen whilst moving house, I find my 35 year old JT BMX race pants! Months pass, we clear the back of the new garden with an eye on making a dirt track & the plan completes itself with a sudden invite from Co Built Anthony to take a pit bike off him for pocket money... With Masonic ceremony, Caspar for the first time puts on my JT's, last worn 30 years ago, and we stride into the garden to pop his motorcycle cherry! I'm holding back the tears.
Grrhh, the bikes just that little bit too tall, just that little bit too heavy, in 6 months it will be perfect. In the meantime someone's got to have some fun..." Dr
