    my lame little huck

    An afternoon spent on some river trails today with my kid. I know this isn't much but it's a start. It's hard to see in this pic but behind me is a cliff that's about a 10' drop. That's my goal. I never got any real air going down this one as there's a creek at the bottom but we did find another shorter one later with about a 4' drop to a dh landing. Sweet, now I'm sure- this is my favorite bike of all time.

    There were a jillion quads and dirt bikes there today. We got to watch this one gomer on a quad get squirrely on the edge of a creek bank. He was turning hard on an off camber and lost it. He flipped and rolled a couple times before he was pitched completely loose and landed in the middle of a 20' wide creek. LOL we sat and watched those idiots for a long time and laughed until we almost cried

    nice little roller

    Next time you go there you should add a little kicker at the top and get some serious air time. Yeah it will be a flat landing but you now have the bike for it.

    You still like the ride? Any scratches yet?

    Yea put a jump at the top........if you want to die. Simply more speed and it can be a flat landing....with a jump its suicide.

    Rollers for now. We did do another shorter one that had a real cool root across the top of it for a kicker. I'm learning a little at a time. Funny, I can get on top of some of these things and think how easy it would be on the YZ, but I won't try on the bullit (yet). I guess I just don't have the confidence on this little bike yet. But it's coming more every time I go.

    dirtbikedude- I stopped even looking for scratches after the first trip

    A small kicker a few feet before the edge and you could drop into it...if the landing is not too soft.
