MK 19 Question
« on: August 11, 2019, 09:04 PM »
Just a quick question,do you think that Bob Haro,Harry leary etc like the selfies that have been clicked at MK?

i've just been on this subject with my boss,his cousin owns a few bars in Benidorm and is a sponsor for Castleford Tigers rugby team and whenever he comes home to Castleford he get's adults  asking for selfies.

it might be just me but  I  find it weird  asking for a selfie with another adult no matter how famous they are

Depends where its at, like if i saw J Depp in a cafe enjoying lunch i wouldnt stop him for a selfie, if he was just chillin then id say hello and say i like his work as i walked past, but if he was at a premiere and meeting fans for an hour then why not. But then im not a selfie whore who plasters everything over Social medai.

Some loosers/stalkers go mad if they dont get a selfie and spend the rest of their lives slagging the celeb off  :idiot2:

I guess Bob was happy to take selfies with people, he must have known he was gona get asked and he always loved promoting BMX and meeting people, esp if he got to ride while doing it, im sure he had a blast until you all got drunk and asked for dick pics, then again he might have liked that too!  :LolLolLolLol:

I know for a fact that at least Bob doesn't mind at all as at this year's MK it was him that suggested we get one together! That blows my mind just thinking about it  :D

Growing up i only knew about Bob Haro, i remember seeing a 1984 Sport in a shop window :smitten: I stared at that bike for 2 hrs every Sat morning, for 8 weeks until it sold. In my mind i stripped it down and rebuilt my dream bike. I remember thinking whats a Mike (microphone) Dominguez? im puttin Bobs name on there in blue chrome instead and so 30 yrs and a bit later i did just that  :slayer:

i met bob h last year at mk19 he was the nicest bloke ever , my daughter told him on the fri nite he was my schoolkid hero and he came up to me and shook my hand , i gushed like a skoolkid , my daughter thought it was hilarious, so much time for everyone, we had selfies ,ok we bought a bit of gear , but he signed stuff etc i took there etc
i know he knows wot he s letting himself in for but he must get a bit fed up ??? he seemed genuinely happy to meet n greet , he must be into it as much as us ????
wots the deal then ???? does radbmx pay his air fare ???? are the tshirts a sweetner , bit of spending cash ???? he cant be short ? he must have done very well when he sold company in late eighties surely ???
they say u shud never meet ur childhood hero !!! fook that !!! bob haro was awesome
keep it on the blackstuff baby, aww fook it

Me and my son met him at MK17 I think, might have been MK16? He was off his rocker but really sound, didn't mind have a photo taken with us. We were riding the ramps and he came over for a chat with Radii Rob, Ed and a few of us riding. Sent the pic immediately to my brother in Oz and he was even more fooking gutted that he wasn't there  :2funny:
