Well with all these teaser pics of snow on the web and me still 3 months away, I had to get out and play with this summers new toy, my Insect longboard.
Anyway...whoever said "hey ghost..you should get a longboard" is a bad influence!!
I've maintained a relatively injury free riding season, but now I'm getting in trouble with the fuzz.
I ride on my universitys campus, bombing decently lit hills at night to avoid traffic. In the past the Department of Public Safety has told me "thats not very safe you know" or "you cant skateboard on campus" but they never really did anything about it other than give me the look like I was crazy. But tonight I guess was the last straw.
While I was bombing my favorite hill, I got a good start and was going to see how fast I could go...well as I'm cruising along at a pretty good speed in the normally 25mph speed zone, I get flashed with a bright light from the adjacent parking lot. I turn around and "woop woop" *flash flash*...next thing ya know..Im getting pulled over.
Mr. Po-lice man then gives me a lecture about how he doesnt want to have to clean me up off the road and then continues to tell me that I was "Exceeding the speed limit on a skateboard" and that I am going to be escorted off campus.
Anyway, breaking the law is nothing to brag about..but there is just a certain pride I feel in knowing that I stuck it to the man by "Exceeding the speed limit on a skateboard."
