    Bonnyhopping & train cars

    When I was in Jr High. Many a moon ago. Around '80. A friend and I found out that a train that carried automobiles would be parked not far from my school. A few times a week it would be there. Empty, sitting, beckoning us. We threw our bikes up on the train car and would ride as fast as we could so we could bunny hop from car to car. It was great. Just to date my self further, this was when Mongoos was making good bikes and I had the motomags for a while till I discovered alloy rims.

    Anyone else ever done the train car thing?

    I don't remember exactly, Biut I think it was around 8 ft or so. At speed, that's not very far.
