Jumping Photos

Hey,

Here's some pics my wife took of me yesterday. Lately I've been posting about the type of riding I do, but I thought some of you might like to see what it is I'm talking about. Sorry for the low quality, but my wife was using a disposable camera and it was pretty overcast outside. Enjoy!!


I showed the landing zone so you could possibly infer my flight path. I reached probably 3-3.5' feet up on this jump.


I was getting 4-5 feet up off this jump. The only problem was it was difficult to build up speed before launching.


Here I'm launching off of some low stairs. My wife claims I was getting up to around 4-4.5' feet upwards from bunnyhopping off the top step.


Here's my wife on the same stairs. I'm really proud of her for this because she's just learning and was willing to give it a try.


Here I am after the ride with my bike and jeep.

Hit the quote button on my first post and you'll see how I posted the images. it's very similar to writing in HTML

You look like you're getting some pretty good air in the pic on your profile! I hope that wasn't the jump you almost broke your arm on... Thanks for the comments!

Bokkie,

Yeah, my wife was pretty nervous. She's been great though about trying things. I'm still trying to guage her level of skill so I'll know what kind of trails she can handle.
