Mate, whole-hearted congratulations on finding an under-aged organ donor. A priceless find.

Smart youngsters who are on their last legs ... can greatly benefit from negligent parents, like this young donor's.

Congratulations again. A fantastic find. Just don't harvest his brain OK, in case his parent's intelligence is already blue-printed in there.

Warren.

PS, WeakMite, a top photograph Mate. Good timing Mate.

My superman impression landed me in the hospital with a cast on my wrist.

I've been OTB badly 3 times as a kid, each landed me in the hospital. Only once on the MTB, luckily I didn't get knocked out because I landed face first in a stream while riding solo.

Even still, I don't know why but this picture is cracking me up.

Never been OTB on my mountain bike, but riding a dirt bike is different. I hit a puddle of mud and stopped dead in my tracks. I kept holding onto the bars and my feet and body swapped ends. It was rough and I feel this kids pain.
Something similar happened to me in Wales on my moutainbike, there was a stream crossing the part i was riding, I was doing about 25mph, and thought "thats no problem, i'll just manual over it", I got closer and decided not to even manual it because it looked so small. Little did I know the stream was full of extremely boggy mud, my front wheel stuck and i went flying, landing in a part of the stream further down as it meandered.

Considering it was raining (but i'd stayed dry untill then), it was about 2 degrees celcuis and this was the start of the ride, with no change of clothes, I wasnt a happy bunny

If you've never been OTB then you need to step up your pucker factor. Going OTB is like a right of passage for MTBers.

It is an experience, for sure. The experience can vary markedly though depending on speed and the environment around you. I've been over three times within the past couple years but one was especially memorable with a fairly steep vertical along one side. Thankfully I didn't slide too far.
