StarBoyz Wheelie School

I am thinking of going to Akron,Ohio to see the wheelie school they have going on there. You want to go Matt? I was born in Akron and grew up there for a bit. Both my parents are from there. I go back from time to time to visit all my relatives that still live there.

Anyways. Its pretty cool to know that from a town I was born and lived in has a very well known group of riders and stunters from there as well. Hey, maybe i can get a discount. Never know.

Definately is interesting but not sure if I want to sport the cash. But I guess if you out weight that against trashing your own bike, it is well worth....
