As I mentioned before, my friends and I were hardcore skateboarders in high school. I can't really ride one anymore. However, when I went to visit my homeboy Roger in Tianjin (June 2005), we tore it up. Malaysia has the perfect weather for riding but it's too dangerous for an old man like me. Maybe I'll use one strictly for transportation.
