Ain't that the truth.... I've taken digital pics of some places I've rode, and they look pathetic once I see them on my PC. Absolutely no depth perception....
Some places that were really steep, appeared almost flat in a pic.

Yep, Richie's the man to do it. Kona, its doable but it depends where abouts you do it on the hill.

That is doable, what I really want to know is, whats the bottom of the hill/ runout like. I'd hit it if I was able to stop before hitting something... imagine the speed you'd get
