My "riding" pictures

New guy here. Browsed through a few pages here and enjoyed all the pictures I saw. Figured I'd share some of mine that I took recently. The park around here has a handful of trails and some places to get some air.






Pictures turned out kind of crappy, but you get the idea.

Not really clearing a gap, its a "u-ramp" type hill, so going from the other side I get a good amount of speed and launch myself on the other side.

No, safety is good… reflectors in the woods are unnecessary. I’ve seen reflectors that have broken off and ended up trailside. I don’t think the riders littered intentionally, but it could have been prevented.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. The bike isn't all that special, its a DiamondBack Coil EX.

I did use photoshop to touch them up a bit, since the "pictures" are really taken out of a video (thats why they are a bit blurry). As for the reflectors, I have been meaning to take them out. Never really ride at night.
