i think your dillusional.....

btw... the attemps in nwd2 at the jah drop are way funnier... on one he slips both pedals and supermans out of it... he also shatters his helmet shell on the bars....

ps. if you look closely at the attempts in nwd2, you'll nodice hes wearing moto-x boots

Forks 101:

"Shocks" isn't the correct term to refer to the "Forks" of a bicycle....

Maybe you were referring to the rear shock, but I seriously doubt it....

Since there's only one per bike, wouldn't "fork" be a more appropriate term?

i agree, and that drop on a moto bike would not go good, Those guys go sick distance and height, but they land in spots that are meant to land, that hill is no where near steep enough for a moto bike.IMHO thats what i feel. Yea, there was another vid on here about the other attempts, sick, just sick..
