What were you doing aged 10?
I dunno…… 😉 (self satisfied smug grin) , at that age i was doing some pretty hairy stuff on my motocross bikes, i cleared the hawkstone british gp doubles at 12yrs old on a borrowed 125cc, cleared the 50 ft tabletop at Gleniffer braes whilst lying it flat and was quite happy to pop my big wheeled KX80 (stan stephens tuned) on the back wheel from 1st through to flat out in 5th along the beach.
I’m a big feartie jessie now at the age of 40, still love the smell of putoline two stroke oil though.Posted 4 years agoyunkiMember
unlike goody-two-shoes oldgit above (who’s not as old as I thought) I was most certainly not doing what I was told..
In fact, that’s a lie.. I was doing what I was told but I was also doing plenty that I wasn’t told..
I’d been smoking for a whole year.. I had smoked dope at a party down the road thrown by the local scooter boys, we’d sussed out a way into the depot of the cider factory (having grown out of the painful and sadistic apple fights), I was eating hedgehog flavour crisps, practising breakdancing at the youthclub, jumping my bmx over ramps in the street and snogging Bernadette Atkins in the long grass..Posted 4 years agoWhathaveisaidnowMember
riding around the cul-de-sac, riding around the block, playing football, playing searchlight, throwing bouncy balls around and watching them disappear over peoples houses, garden creeping, camping out in dog pens, annoying the neighbours, racing down the road on skateboards… crazy summer water fights, you get the picture… waiting for manic miner to load on my brothers spectrum,….still waiting…..
awesome.Posted 4 years agoRo5eyMember
Mud fights and crabbing when the tide went out/jetty jumping and enjoying the wake of the container ships going past when the tide was high(the only “surf” available in the Thames Estuary)…. riding my Rayleigh Night Burner… my first kiss with some girl from Walsall on holiday in Salou … and working bloody hard for my 11+ while I could hear my mates playing out in the streetPosted 4 years agojamesoSubscriber
I didn’t smoke, I didnt drink boozePosted 4 years ago
I collected Starwars figures and bubblegum tattoos
Stuck em on my face cos it made me feel hard
Then go down the shops to buy some football cards
Finish the album, Panini ’83
Then back home for the A-team and tea
watch Bullseye and Saint and Greavsie,
Then go to bed till tommorrow, see
