Rain + Boredom = Cheap stunt.

I was so bored today after I finished watching the Collective (again) and playing Downhill Domination that I desided to brave the elements and build a stunt. It's not done yet. Currently it is only used as a roll in. Once I get some more lumber I'm going to make it a drop.

Lemme know what you think.

Well I'm off to play GTA: Vice City and DD! Rain ruins my riding days

Ummm....

Looks more like a very small start for a drop. Looks a bit low. You might want to dig a ditch that leads back onto the trail for the drop, or um..I don't see anywhere where that's going. Then again, I don't build stunts.

It's probably 1/4 done. Thats probably why you don't understand it. It's all in my head.

I'm guessing most people here who build these know. But...I am an unexperienced geek.

It looks like a bridge over a 6 inch wide trickle of water. What's it supposed to be?

It's absolutly nothing yet. Just some 2 by 4's cut and nailed together. Its not done. I can ride in the rain but I don't like solo rides and my buddies don't like the rain. Nope its at my house not the college trails.

LOL!!

My friend lives in Toronto, in a Building which I called Richhomia. His back yard seems to be small. But then, theres this huge trail behind it (okay not a trail, but could be a huge crazy one) downhill at like a 45 degree angle-50 degree!! There are trees there and logs too! So crazy.
