Is anyone actually going to watch it or just fast forward to the end when Cru does a backflip at the end to win Helltrack?

You can also buy the digital version on Amazon.

Tried to convince my wife that we should be Cru Jones and Christian Hollings for Halloween, she didn’t bite.

I own it. Made the mistake of getting Jen to watch it and all she could say was, "Don't you ever make fun of Footloose or Dirty Dancing again." Footloose didn't have no Helltrack!!!

Made my 8 year old daughter watch “Rad” for the first time during the quarantine /school closures.
Me and all the guys I grew up with spent countless days on Redlines, Diamondbacks, Free Agents, Hutch, PK Ripper, Mongoose, , Hyperlites, GT, and even a Torker or two reenacting scenes from that movie all while burning through blank VHS tapes in my dads old school camcorder recording all of our stunts! We all grew up racing BMX. I am not ashamed to say I can still quote that movie verbatim almost 30 years later.
And x2 on Christian (Lori) being a hottie in that show!! Lol

That wouldn’t have taken long on our Caliche road and oyster shell driveway. Then dad poured a driveway and the county paved the road....hell, thought we were rich. Still couldn’t ride a skateboard worth a ****, but my Mongoose took me all over town.

RAD. So many great scenes, how does one pick their favorite? From the tricks in the beginning to the tricks during the final credits, just pure greatness. But if forced to choose I would have to select the always stunning 3 some on the dance floor.

Yeah if you were riding a Mongoose you were in it. I had some knock off lime green and white bike. Looked legit with pegs and a free spinning handlebar, but if it fell on you, you'd need a Jaws of Life to get you out. Weighed a ton. Good memories though.

I started out on a bike with a banana seat and ape hanger handle bars. It was totally trashed and rusty as could be and my dad sandblasted it at work for me. I painted it silver with a paint brush and aluminum paint. The kind that runs and drips like crazy and never fully cures. That was a fine ride.

Those were fun times. I wouldn't trade all of that for anything. I learned lots of good lessons fixing and repairing bikes. And no matter how ugly they were our bikes were our first taste of freedom and independence. I guess kids just don't get to run the streets on their bikes like we use to anymore. It sure isn't as prevalent anyway.

Default 80s Kids....

Our bikes were everything to us, as well. Transportation, means to jump stuff, and means to get to the fishin hole. We took all the brakes off, kickstand, chain guards, reflectors....anything that could clog up with mud, or added weight. We put the really fat tires on the front so they would float across the mud and not dig in, and the really skinny one on the rear for the opposite reason. Everyone had a "barbell wrench" taped to the frame. Some of the wrecks were legendary. When dad had a dirt pile delivered in his never ending quest to level his yard....it was like Christmas!

I had a Diamond Back Viper until my sister ran over it with dad's truck, then I bought a Dyno VFR saving up beer cans from deer camp.

He found my old skateboard in his barn a couple months ago. That was a short, but painful stage.

I was already working for a living.




The thing when I was a kid was Evel Knievel jumps. After Wide World Of Sports showed one, the ramps came out. We built one with a picnic table and sheet of plywood. That one was NOT a good idea.
