It seems to me that jumping with that many riders would be infinitely more dangerous than doing it by yourself. But what do I know? I'm a lycra-clad XC guy.

That's what that 20-footer at Sea Otter felt like to me - - does that count? Oh, and I felt like a million just to fly it and land it straight; no stylie for me

I didn't say that I'd land it. I'd try it, but probably come 55 feet short.

Yeah I got confused for a second there Dannihilator. Smashy was easier to type dammit.

I'd like to one day be able to do that, and I'd try it if I had a bike that I'd trust to stay intact! I'd injure myself beyond belief trying it out though.

Unless you have big poops, conservation of momentum is not in your favour on this one...

In a word; NO!

At my age (40) its the sort of stoopid thing one might attempt after not falling off ones bike for about a decade, and after a fast and buzzy ride get a rush of blood and foolishly attempt over
stepping the boundaries of sensibility once more.

I'll downgrade my answer to Not Likely.
