Moscow made a great first impression. The traffic flows freely, and cars barely stop at lights.

Bill Marks transforms himself like a Phoenix from the flames...

And this was the building across from our hotel. It felt like Las Vegas.
Image Description Here
This was the course we skated for our demo in Moscow. It was for sure designed by BMXer's.
Image Description Here
It sucks that the indoor park was charging too much money to hold the demo there, but we still tore this park a new one.
Image Description Here
Asses were signed, of course.
Image Description Here
Josh hurt his foot and couldn't walk.

So we pushed him around on a skateboard.

Koln - Hamburg - Ferry & Train to Denmark...

Image Description Here
Kevin cleans the wax out our proverbial ears.
Image Description Here
Later that day he did his favorite Chriss Angel, MINDFREAK impression.
Image Description Here
We drove to Hamburg, and immediately some kids sighted Josh and came over for some souvenir photos with him.
Image Description Here
Nick got left behind at the hotel in Hamburg, and left us a note stickered to a car...
Image Description Here
which ended with this.
Image Description Here
While Nick got left, we were out in Hamburg's red-light district. Not because we are horn-dogs, but because our hotel was right in the middle of it. Diego gives a thumbs down to this poster.
Image Description Here
Then laughs at some funny food items in the window...
Image Description Here
Burnett got some pointy finger ice-cream that brought his beautiful eyes out.
Image Description Here
It was good for pointing out tight buns.

On the ferry into Denmark, the hot food item was these hot dogs.

Toy Machine Hits Amsterdam!!!

Image Description Here
A beautiful city. It was Nick, Johnny, Matt, Josh, and Kevin's first time. We trolled the red-light district, window shopping for humans.
Image Description Here
The distributor had special Billiard Balls made up for the party after the demo. Our demo was in a GREAT park suspended up inside a giant warehouse. The kids didn't seem to like us, and not one asked for an autograph. Oh well, we had fun skating anyway.

Here is some footage of our demos caught by local skaters in England:
Stoke PLaza #1
Stoke Plaza AND Birmingham
Stoke Plaza Demo #2
