    I've never been there. Is it just an indoor pump track?

    There's no way you could possible know this, but my mom died three years ago after a long and painful battle with pancreatic cancer. I like to think that she's watching over me on every ride.

    But I take it that you mean it's a super-*****in indoor course, which is very exciting.

    That's what I meant.....sorry about your mom.....my mom passed somewhere back in the 90's and my dad way back in 61......none of us are getting out of here alive.

    On a brighter note take a surf around Ray's website and you can view pictures and streaming video of the Cleveland installation.....the MKE branch is rumored to take it to the next level....a level I call plaid. I hope you don't have a scottish terrier named plaid that recently got hit by a bus or something much worse.......let me just apologize in advance for anything I may (or may not) post in the future.

    Don't sweat it. The only memory that the wornd "plaid" brings up is of the movie "Spaceballs" ("They've gone PLAID!).

    I can't wait to go plaid at the new Rays!

    Looks really cool, but it doesn't look like a place for people with little-to-no jump experience.

    What better way to learn......plus you already posted a huck-vid of yourself, so you should be all over this sort of operation....or not.

    haha you're totally right. what does huck mean, though? I'm totally down for the place, but the first video I watched looked like a lot of technical stuff. So I made that last post, then finished the video and saw several kids.

    Then again, I saw 12 year olds up at whistler who were tearing the hell out of the trails. XD

    My nephew and i went to Rays in cleveland this april 2010 and what a blast. I am not a jumper and not a super rider i found out after spending 10 hours at Rays on a tuesday, we had the place almost to ourselves. if you want to jump you can do it all day if you wanna ride the elevated single track there were 22 lanes which blew my mind, plus tons of things to try, never board and the best $22 i have ever spent I crashed 7 times and i loved every one, most were caught on video and i wach the dvd every time it rains and i cant ride. We drove 11 hours and would do it again but Milwaukee is on 4 hours. see you all there this winter

    I just solved that and I'm doing a bad job of selling my large STP.

    It dawned on me that a light frame can be beat or damaged easier but it sure is fast and fun.

    I am looking forward to Ray's. I work in Milwaukee a few times a year and I'm loving the Quarry Park and Pleasant View riding even though I'm terrible at it.

    I haven't been to the original Ray's but have been to the new one to help build and ride. From what I understand, they're kicking it up a notch over the first one. It's pretty damn cool so far.

    Really?

    How long do you think it will be before someone is robbed of their ride?

    We should start a pool.
