Bad bail pics (yourself or others)

Ok, well one time I went off a jump down a hill over a ditch thing in my yard and the front wheel got stuck and I flew foreward and hit pretty hard on the ground. I slid about 5 feet with the bike on top of me. I had made it maybe 3 times before that. Yes, I know I'm not wearing a helmet, I'm sorry, I'm a bad person. Yes i know that isnt a bike that I should have been jumping on, my ways have changed, I no longer do stupid things like that. That was back in my "Hey SWEET JUMPZ MAN" days.


That was one of the ones I made it on.


That was the fall.

The one you guys had as an avatar? That was a great pic.

Here's a picture just after I fell off the wooden crossing. Not a very dramatic pic but it hurt a lot.

Is that water or a drop. I thought at first it was a cliff edge but now that you mention it....I guess it is water.

I bet when you went off that jump you were thinking "damn this is easy". Then you didn't quite make it..
