I had to go back to the 'scene of the crime' today and snap some pics.

The jump I cleared for the first time Friday (this one's been bugging me since last year - - note the prodigious ride-around tracks):





The one I usually clear cleanly:



The two right after that I still haven't mastered (dunno why - - it's a rhythm thing):



The berm-to-berm (very fun and flowy):



The new one right after it that I also cleared:





. . . and the one that ate me (note to self: a little bit of hip to clear the tree if necessary, not lay it over off the lip):

An obvious case of age-related osteoporosis. The "double" was the story you came up with when you tripped over your walker rushing towards the early-bird buffet.

Look at the bright side, dminor. As you heal up, you'll have more time to peruse the forums and keep the young ruffians in line. While you do that, I'll be out on riding.

Heal up quickly.
