It is an XRT 4D Flashback Weekend and for the next few days we celebrate the music and the memories of the 1980s. A few staff members have asked what I was doing in the 1980s these past few days… I was building jumps. That’s a sweet jump I threw together in the backyard in 1984. That was a few years before I discovered Run DMC’s “Raising Hell” and GNR’s “Appetite For Destruction,” but not before I’d purchased “Thriller” at a local Toys ‘R’ Us. They had that record everywhere, I’m telling you.
I’ve become quite a bike junkie since moving to Chicago, but it was always there, and now you have the visual evidence.
