Got some fall riding in (pics)

Hey everyone...today me and a friend decide to go back to some jumps that we havent been to in a long time. It was a blast...don't even remember why we stopped going there cause it was a lot of fun. Anyhow...here are some pics

Me trying to learn to table:


Better look at me trying to learn to table:


Just a cool looking shot we got of me:


Buddy hitting a gap:


Anyhow...hope you enjoy. Sorry about the poor quality of the pics...we are by no means photographers.

Oh and if anyone has any tips to help improve my half-assed tables that would be awesome.

"Sorry about the poor quality of the pics"

Actually the silhouette photo on number three is quite nice.

Pics look good to me. Did your buddy make the gap? Wish I could help with the table but for some reason I can't even get my bike off the ground anymore. I think I developed some type of phobia or something but oh well I am just getting back into it

Try watching some vids and looking at pics, you'll be able to see how they get theyre legs positioned to flatten the bike. I can only do them about as well as you, but everytime you ride they'll get bigger.
Good luck!

Flash works good, but I like the sihouette effect as well.
