Things a little elfy......

We've all been waiting for this killer pic of the best bike ever with a great rider named elf throwing some hardcore drop skillz.It seems that he has ducked and dodged this subject in every way after some boastful talk. I think we should dedicate a thread to the elf. Feel free to make any hardcore claims here.Give all the wacked out advice you want. Post your sic riding pics here so he can see that it can be done.Big props to you elf.

I'll start with a pic of the girlscout doing a drop on an Enduro so the elf can see it can be done.

clarification sought: is it the punching that will be repeatedly in the throat or the bad-mouthing?

Set up a stand with a time stamp and date, otherwise it's not you.

Punches to throat. It will be apparent in the event that it becomes necessary.
