In a motel near Fort Benning Georgia while at basic training for ROTC, I got to watch this historic moment. Sci-Fi was real now! I can't believe how much time has passed since then, but still going strong.

Where were you and what did it mean to you?

Meanwhile, through aero-space inventions, biking continues to become perfected for our enjoyment. Like my new Ripley V4 which just got sent out!

Is this Ibis forum?

Summertime 50 years ago I was 14 and getting schooled by “older” girl who was 17. Her name was Shelley, tan, blonde and beautiful. I’m sure Neil Armstrong got pretty excited about those steps on the moon but the back seat of Shelley’s car was way better bro!

Anyway, just ordered a new Ripley V4.

I was 7 years old and if I remember right, I got kinda bored after 30 min and was a bit miffed that my usual TV shows were not on. Still was way cool to have been around for such a historic moment.

I was 6 and a half. I rode a red Schwinn Stingray back then with a sissy bar and a racoon tail attached (Daniel Boone thing).
I ride a Ripmo now with a coyote tail (just kidding about the tail).
