    ... and if we just ... Really Need Advice

    Have been ridin' cross country and freeride for about ten years, but decided it was time for more of a downhill bike. Bought an 06 Big Hit III; don't know where to find advice on safety equipment, things I should know about how to ride, where to ride, or anything else. Suggestions would be much appreciated. None of my buddies ride downhill...
    Thanks !

    ask around, hang out in the DH bike shops(ask mechanics and customers)...wait on aweekend at the local DH trail....

    basically try to hook up with DH riders to help you out
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days
