Hello everyone it's Brandon S. from Alexandria La. I am one of two people that ride flatland in a 90mi radius. I've been in and out of riding since they called it freestyle. If you like metal check out my bands page on www.myspace.com/brokenbytheburden. Due to many musical projects for the last 16yrs I,ve not had alot of time to ride enough untill now. I realize I'm 35 and need some me time so I'm back. Currently I'm riding an Ares but will be building up a KHE Millitant, so I'll be in the market for some new forks and other items in the near future. So if anyone likes the music hit us up with a friends request,and exsuse the recording we're in the process of rerecording since the loss of a bass player. Thanks-Brandon. :ph34r:

Hello to everyone on Global!  I must have been crazy to start riding flat 15 years ago.  My best years to date were on my bike and unfortunately it's been too long since I've been to the parking lot.  Funny thing is, I play all the "links" out in my head all the time and when I pick up a bike, I'm better than the last time I rode.  I guess once you've spent countless hours by yourself in a parking lot with everyone looking at you like your nuts, it just becomes a part of you.  Anyways, I look forward to hanging out at Global Flat.

Name: Keith
Age: 24
Location: Long Island, NY (hopefully not much longer!)
Occupation: Pilot
Riding Since: Flatland since around 02, Trails from around 98-02
Bike: Used to ride a S&M Sabbath (waay too heavy set up), now a WTP Metric, soon a KHE Paris 2

Im a flight instructor first working toward my dream of flying for an airline and I flatland when Im not flying or not in school. I've been an on and off rider since I started riding flat, however Im getting back into it more than ever since I just started progressing alot more than I ever have. 99.9999% of the time I ride alone, that because I RARELY see any serious flatlanders around here. If anyone is around Farmngdale NY and wants to ride some flat, shoot me an email. Not sure how much longer I'll be here though, going for a new flight instructor job this summer hopefully...probably out in Cali or Florida where the weather is better. Hopefully the flat scene is better out in those states as well.
