    Tomorow me and a few of my friends are going up to our high school for some riding. They have a loading dock in the back of the school about 8 feet tall. There isn't alot of room coming up to it. We were thinking of hitting it and maybe trying some 360's and stuff off of it. What do you guys think?

    for me i wouldn't thinks its the smartest thing to do 360s off of it unless you are pretty sure you can cause youll either spin to much or to little

    I can do 360's pretty easily now but the part that worrys me is theres only like 2 bike lengths of room before the drop.

    I just picked up a copy of tomorrow's paper:

    CARNAGE AT LOCAL SCHOOL

    Emergency personnel were summoned to a local school today when a local BMXer fell to his death from a school loading dock. Friends of the victim watched in horror as he attempted a full mid-air turn (or "360" as it is known) from the eight-foot-high deck.
    "We were all telling him it was like suicide," said one onlooker, who asked not to be identified, "But he said he asked this online bike forum thing and the guys there were telling him, you know, go for it." "We totally thought Mott was going to land it, right?" added another, "But he just over-rotated, and it got real ugly. Here. This is one of his teeth."
    The victim has been tentatively identified as "Mott," or "the Mottster," but officials are witholding official identification of the body until the head can be located.

    I dont see a loading dock being 8 feet high.. Most are like 3-5. Why are you asking us if it's a good idea? Just do it and tell us about it afterwards.

    The tallest loading dock I've ever seen was five feet, and that had an uphill slant to it to facilitate easier loading and offloading.

    He's not going to do it. He'll try a roof drop into a grassy bank before he does a tre off an alledgedly 8' tall loading dock.

    That reminds me that I need to get my roof dropping on.

    What the f*uck kind of truck has a deck that's 8 feet high?

    And landing on flat surfaces are a quick and easy way to break your bike and your body.

    You beat me to it Snazzy. But it's lunch time, and chicken can't wait. It's not a loading dock if it's that high.

    I was wrong. My friends and everybody told me its a loading dock, Its not, its basically a 8ft tall cliff. I went an looked at it after school ended. I'm going to go meet my friends up at the school after this post and im going to try and jump the cliff part. The landing wont be that bad because it is grass.

    I just got back. I pulled a 360, and a couple x-ups off it. We taped it on our video camera. When we get the movie done, ill put a link to my friends website which should have the video on it. It will be a couple weeks though.

    Dude, at least post a still pic of the 8' high loading dock. I think we're all a little suspicious of a loading dock that high. Unless it's for a plane. But looking foarwrd to the vid though. Please make it nothing more than 1meg pieces. I'm on "d a i l u p"
