Weeeeeeee!!!!

My bros showed me a drop they found today and asked me if I was brave enough to ride off. Huh huh huh, I couldn't let them down. At first I was a little worried because it was at least 5 foot, and it was to a flat landing. But I couldn't let them down, so I went for it. WEEEEEEE!!!!! I was so fun, I rode off it several more times. I almost bottomed out my fork(something I never done) and once I hit my seat and slammed it down. The flat landing was pretty rough, but man!!!! It was fun!!!!!

I was very pleased that my fork(a Manitou X-vert) took those hits so well, it really is a great fork.

Nice work. I have a serious problem with nose diving. It is a mental thing I know but as soon as I get to the lip I look down. Guess what, I go down

Was it urban, trail. Long fast run at it or did you have to do a wheelie drop?

It was a trail. I didn't do a wheelie drop, but there wasn't a very long run afterwards. So I had to slam on the brakes a few seconds after I landed. I almost ran into some crap a few times, but it was worth it. I don't think a wheelie drop wolud have work actually, because there was some stuff to clear in order to get a good landing, so I needed some speed.

dirtbikedude, nobody got photos, but I'll be doing the drop again, and I'll get some.
