I hate stinkbike so much now because of the jackasses in the comment section.

But nice shots dude, I suck at dj'ing but it's still fun when you get better to be hittin road gaps and stuff.

These are some of the road gaps we built this summer:

Nice shots WGG.

I do have one little question/critique, why are you looking at your front tire? Eyes up and spot your landing but do not stare at it. Other then that good job.

If you do give the bigger jumps a try remember that speed will be your friend (unless there is a tree stump just after the landing ). Most of the time it is better to over shoot rather then come up short. Although comming up short does make for some funny vids and photos

cripes, sometimes I forget that there are people younger than me on this forum. lookin good though. one thing I'd like to mention, you can post your pictures directly, go to the link you posted, left click for properties, copy that address to your post and put [img] tags on it. 56k'ers will hate you if you post more than a couple of pics this way, but for the lazy man in all of us, it means no clicks necessary. like this...

I had other pictures that showed the landing and everything, the first two are about 15X15 and the last is about 20X10.

Such a fun gap. Went from doing 10 footers, to 17's.

Here is a friend of mine. He is pretty good. Doing No Footers Over The Same Jump.

For how much of a landing that there isn't, its really nice. Very small tranny, but still smooth. I am looking at the 20Ft right before it. Might hit it tommorow to.
