Another Offtopic.

My birthday is coming up. My dad recently told me he was going to get me a new dog! :D I've always wanted a dog...but never had one. Now I'm finally getting one! Cool thing is, it ain't just a dog, it's a Beagle! Only the cutest puppy ever, and it's a hunting dog. Me and my father have been hunting for ages together for a father and son activity and I love it and now that I'm going to have a beagle it's going to be even better. Since I want one so bad I'm going to have to train it tho, which doesn't bother me at all because it's going to give me something to do, and it's going to like me more then anyone else in the family because it's going to be mine. I'm going to have to pay for it as well since I got a job at wendys and all, but I couldn't care less.


I hate banks. I deposit money, and I don't get my money! It's been exactly one week (7 days), 5 business days, and I still DON'T have my money. I thought of something awesome; if they don't get you your money in the amount of days they say it will take, they should double it! Why? Because they are wasting my god damn time running back and forth to the bank to see if my money is in yet. I can't eat, I can't go out to my friends, I can't buy my games I've been planning on buying...why? Because banks are dumb!

Jesus murfy.

The Expensive Sport of Motocross

I can say that the title says it all. Dirtbiking is a sport that is loved by millions of people. Easy to say this because of the amount of people that show up at events such as freestyle concerts and motocross races. Sadly, even tho we all love it oh so much, we can't all participate to this wonderful sport. If you are looking to start dirtbiking, you are best off buying a used bike, unless you're rich of course. For a brand new 2008-2009...YZ 125 lets say; you are looking at about 7000 dollars on the spot. Personnaly, a used dirtbike was good enough for me so I went and bought a 2001 yz 125. That cost me 2800 dollars on the spot, but hey! I'm in love with my bike. Sure it ain't brand new spic n span, but it is still an amazing bike and it is in great shape. Woah there! I'm not done. I got lucky because my bike came with a stand to rest the bike on, free pants and a decent helment that I'm planning on changing. But in order to become a good rider, and ride safe, you do need to make some more purchases. You'll probably need, goggles, gloves, boots, helmet, and if you want to keep a clean style; a nice jersey that goes with your bike, your pants, your gloves, your helmet and boots. For goggles, you're looking at 50-100$. I bought pro grip goggles for 85$. For Boots, around 200$ to 300$ or more. I bought sixsixone boots for 200$. For a jersey; 40-50$, for pants; 100-200$, for gloves; 30-50$, and for a helmet; 100-300$. For everything I bought in equipement, my total was around 3500$. That is of course without maintence fees. To have a good preforming dirtbike, you have to maintain it. Taking apart your bike, cleaning the air filter, washing it, checking the spark plug, your tires, are all things you should do after every ride. Treat it with respect because getting on that bike is risking your life.

Rock onnnn!


Ok, heres the dealio, I know I complain alot about other people and there automatic guns just gunning, spraying and praying they hit someone. I do hate it! But...always a but...I am still a really big fan of speedball. Speedball and Woodsball are to completly different things. Well, they are both paintball, merely by that I simply meant tatic wise. Playing woodsball is very fun because of the tatics needed to play; being stealth, conserving your paintballs, camoflauge, and other tactics. Speedball is different in a way that it's like playing a basketball game or a dodgeball game. You just go at it. Don't get me wrong, just going at it does not mean you do not need to use tactics, of course you need tactics! For example; team strategies and plans, what type of player you are ( frontman, Back, etc...), and the list goes on. For speedball, your equipement is entirely different as well. These types of paintball markers are ment for 25 paintballs per second. They can be used for Woodsball, but they aren't made as reliable as scenario markers. The picture on the left is a great speedball marker known as the Ego 08 by Planet eclipse. Other things needed for speedball that are different then woodsball are lets say a pod pack. Pod packs are belts with slots to slide in a pod containing paintballs. In Woodsball, you usually use a vest that can hold your air tank, a various amount of pods that contain 100-200 paintballs, cb radios, etc. As you can tell, it's more realistic and kind of like s.w.a.t. In speedball, teams usually wear all the same kind of jersey, same colour of course. In Woodsball, you would be more tempted into wearing camo to blend in with your enviroment. The list of different items goes on so I'll put a stop to it NOW.

Ragland...NOT CLOSED?

Alright, I was told it was closed, now I've heard otherwise. Turns out ragland is still opened to us riders. But, I did hear there was some enterances blocked off, but that shouldn't be a problem. If I hear any other information about ragland and wether it is closed or not, or partially closed (what ever floats your boat), I will post it immidiatly.

Horray for ragland!

Ragland closed?

The sand pits where I usually go out to ride around on my dirt bike with a couple buddies named ragland is now closed? I was recently notified about this. Even though we do not have at the moment, proof of this, but a rumor about someone getting into an accident and breaking his legs. That is why big cement blocks in every entrance have supposedly blocked off the pit. That is a big mistake I find. Closing the only pit near by the people of Oshawa to go enjoy a good day of sun to dirt bike. What do you expect? It is a dangerous sport known to all of us, well most of us I guess. 

Motocross: a timed motorcycle race over a closed course consisting of a winding dirt trail with hills, jumps, sharp turns, and often muddy terrain (Researched definition)

Motocross is a sport where a huge amount of various stunts are presented by most skilled and professional riders of today's society. Riding a dirt bike is not made for showing off; you ride for the love of the sport. Some people aren't as lucky as others, but it happens, it is life. If this rumor is real, I know for a fact there will be many complaints about the closing of this sand pit where many people practiced their favorite sports most likely to be extreme, for example: ATV Riding, Dirt Biking, Off Roading. What's next? Closing of a skate park because of an accident?Someone broke his arm for trying to perform a stunt that went wrong. Skate parks are made for skateboarding, sand pits are meant for the previous extreme sports mentioned.

A Small Off Topic Thought

35 million dollars...35 million dollars? 35 MILLION DOLLARS!? I don't get why the lottery cannot just make everyone happy, and share their big amount of money to a bigger amount of people insted of giving away a big amount to one person. Now this is just a thought, but why in the name of cows would someone need 35 million dollars? What are you going to do with that much money? I know! Show Off. If someone can live their lifes with 100 000 dollars a year, imagine having 35 million. Now don't get me wrong; 100 grand a year is a good life, that is why this confuses me.

If I were to win that much money, I would not be able to spend it all, I could be selfish and do it, but it would be a waste. I'd start by giving 2 million to my dad, to my brother, to my mother, and to my grand mother. I'd give away 500 000 to my uncle, my good cusins, and my god father and god mother.
Afterwards, I've always had this dream of starting my own paintball field. I would invest money into that and make me a field and store for paintballers where entrance is free, free air refills, free rentals unless you break it, and the paintballs are regular price. Nothing would make me happier to see everyone enjoy themselfs at a field that no one is getting ripped off.

The next thing I would do is live my second dream of buying me a RV that comes with a storage room in the back in order to store my 2 dirt bikes I would buy, and leave for mexico for the red bull events for motocross. Riding in the deep sand with special tires, and just riding. No worries, no thoughts about anything else, just me, my buddies, and our bikes.
