Ok everyone I apologize.  I screwed up, big time.  I should have told you all sooner how great city cruisin is.  It’s really fun and we’ve never covered it on SkateSlateJapan.

Before reading on, I’d like you to know that this article was inspired by a good friend that I recently lost.  I miss you a lot buddy so here we go! It was you that said we could do anything!
