Drop, crash, FAIL!

Yeah, sometimes you fall. It's getting back that counts!

Nice...I'd ride that drop =) It's been a while since I've taken the (M)uni out on the trails though. I'm sure my first few attempts wouldn't be pretty.

nice log skinny riding! Yeah that drop was pretty small compared to others I've done, and landed. Like this:

^^ You've definitely got me in the skills department. I've only done one big (4.5 ft -ish) drop worth mentioning, and I pogo'ed the approach, not nearly as classy as rolling in. But it's been probably 6 years since I've last truly ridden my uni. Around the garage and street, sure, but not out on any trails. Last time I think was a Muni weekend in Carpinteria, CA. It was a big organized event that they'd held in Tahoe area before. I drove out there and slept in the back of my pickup truck to save some $. Had a TON of fun riding the trails down toward the coast off of the ridge. My 24" Torker was the cheapest uni out there, but it was SO much fun.
