I've been lurking here for awhile now, so I figured I'd better join in the fun and start contributing.
My name is Rick, I ride a 2007 S-WORKS STUMPY and I usually hang out at Hawes or SOMO. I live right by Papago so I hit that for my weekday work-out rides.
My other passions are photography and rattlesnakes....

Santa Brought me GOPRO camera this year. :thumbsup:

With a hobby like rattlesnakes, have you ever been bitten?
If you ride a mountain bike long enough- you WILL crash.
The same goes with rattlesnakes.

A few years ago, I was bitten while photographing a banded rock rattlesnake


Bite doesn't look like much does it ?


This is what $9700 in antivenin looks like:


I ENDED UP BUYING 7 OF THOSE and spent 6 days in ICU.

To put it into perspective-
I've never seriously injured myself while riding but when I do, I'll heal up and keep riding because I love it.
I have that same love for rattlesnakes !

Welcome Rick! A good sense of humor will go a long way on here... that song is hilarious and a good choice for your "introduction". See you on the trails :)

My girl, Lucky told me to say " what up" to Boojum and Joopiter !

Nice vid and welcome!

The wife and I love Jon Lajoie and if you like that- check out Asher Roth- another funny rapper/satirist.

Like the video perspective to on the GoPro- made me feel like I was riding a wheelie the whole way!

^ Haha, I felt the same way. I actually took the time to do a google search on GoPro and was on the site for a half an hour drooling over their cameras. I might have to look into getting one some day. Pretty cool stuff.
