I went of this double without only looking breifly looking at the landing before I hit it. So I went of it, and all was good, but right before I landed I saw a deer standing about 20 feet past the landing. That made me **** my pants for sure.

When I was about 9, I took my sister's bike off a bike jump. The grips came off in my hands, mid-air.

We used to build tracks in the park, with jumps and berms all weaving around trees. Totally sketchy at speed.

i've been riding local spots, probably till next week due to the transit strike. i landed a tailwhip to manual, and i'm gonna 180 out of it soon, and i was trying to do a 180 tailwhip to fakie, but i kept on indian giving. it's so hard to get both rotations dialed. i was also going for a real manual to 360, without turning before the spin. i got about 240 and i bailed, wrecked my arm.awesome day without pegs

Welcome newb. Don't bother with the profanity, or trying to go around it. You'll just end up getting banned.

when I was like 12 or so, I took out my sisters bike it was a very small 20" mountain bike I was riding up on top of steel flat bed trailer that had nothing in the center part but a piece of wood I put there to ride on. Well I jumped onto it and went through it and well it really hurt. I had a consusion and i got stitchs in my left knee not to bad but it was funny. But i've done alot of other things where I have gotten hurt or done stupid things for fun just to put on my video, that my 2 of my freinds are making.

That's hardly a mountain bike. That's what we refer to as "department store garbage" in the real world.

when i was 9 or 10, i tried to plow through a long mound of snow with my friends bike. the mound of snow was created by a large log lying on the ground. if only i had known that before charging full speed into it

when I was 10 I rode my BMX everywhere. One day it was sorta wet outside and I wanted to impress my friends with some new tricks. I started to do a no hands move, but I fell down. Just when I fell I farted and sneezed at the same time. Everyone laughted at me and left me as I was. I was sad.
