    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.

    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.
    I'm not totally useless....I can be used as a BAD example.
