Timo, www.facebook.com, june 2013: Possibly still one of the coolest BMX Plus! covers. Mat Hoffman feb. 1990 on his tricked-out PK Ripper. Bike-wise this was very interesting era with all the mixed custom stuff going on. The bikes looked as if they were built out of dumpster finds. Especially, when compared to today's BMX sub genre-specific models and specifications, where you have dozens and dozens of look-a-likes for each yet still they all look the same, more or less. It is also pretty stunning to think all this happenend 23 years ago while i still remember all this like it was just couple months ago. So this is how it feels every day when you get older. BMX Plus! magazine was the highlight for every month. The highly anticipated news from other side of the world on what's going on in Freestyle BMX. Kids these days might not fully understand how that felt back then. The magazine was the gateway, the source. Anyway, excuse me for being stuck in the past. Like the covers says; Goodtimes!
