    I later lost a battle with a tree, after the back end kicked out the wrong way on a high speed downhill ledge drop jump.

    Dang Chris, if it's got 2 wheels and a throttle you're all over it! Nice shots of all you guys leaving terra firma.

    I am in awe of those crazy dudes in those desert videos (Demons of Dirt) that just gonzo launch those dunes. That is so friggin' cool! I could never bring myself to do that though.

    I don't get as excited about watching the freestyle jump stuff for some reason.

    YZ80 I'm thinking. That kid is going to be singing soprano if someone doesn't teach him to keep his feet on the pegs when jumping.

    My poor KLX's frame wasn't meant for this kind of abuse. I lost track of how many times I had to have the frame welded/repaired over the years.

    I believe you are correct. I thought the kid was bigger. Wearing shorts is a no no too but hey, kids don't give a rip.

    Over the ant hill in Clarksville with one of my riding buddies on his 83 CR480. That's a sweet riding bike. That was a scary jump with a double right after it. Wish I had the pic of me doing the flyin "Y" in Hartsville Tn. going over a 50ft double coming out of a left hand sweeper after a dragon tail obstacle. Insane. I wasn't as good as some of my friends over the jumps but I could make up time on the flats and turns.

    Jumps like that give me nightmares. I don't fly anymore and big air on motorcycles go over my internal max elevation scale. Plus, I don't heal as fast as I used to. I rarely crashed on the MX track. Primarily because it hurts and I was afraid to. That's the one thing that held me back from being faster.

    Re: Got air? Let's see it!

    I've definitely gotten to where I won't launch stuff the way I used to. There's this one silly little short "double" out at the riding trails (that nobody actually jumps) that I want to try and clear so bad. But it's a situation where if you don't get it EXACTLY right the first attempt there could be painful consequences.

    Yea, well...that thing ws scary to look at given you only had maybe 15 yards to get up speed. Had to come out of the sweeper like your hair was on fire to make it. There was no way I was gonna try it but some 14 year old punks on 4 wheelers were clearing it and busting our chops, calling us old farts so I told my friend with the 480 I'd do it if he went first. Well, an open class bike has more balls than a 250 with a 220lb rider. He made it...I hit the lip with my back tire (technically it was a single to a table top) and then I commenced to doin the purdiest flyin Y you ever saw. Kept it upright, landed on my balls, rode the front tire until I bounced off a wooden perimeter fence. I stayed up though! Too afraid to crash. Took me 30 minutes to calm down. Never tried it again.

    I lived in FL back in the 70's one of my buddy's (Dave Schultz / the drag racer) this family had a cabin outside up the mountain from Springwater, TN... it was a 12 power run to get there from Ft Myers.. several of us FL boys would go up on a long weekend to ride some hills... WOW great memories!

    We'd take our Kawasaki F7's we converted to motocross bikes and ride the hell out of those hills! Good times!

    I don't believe I have pictures of us getting AIR I'll have to look!

    40+ years ago my first bike I raced MX on Hodaka Super Rat. Lots of mods 21" front wheel ,plastic tank, ported piston, 32MM Mikuni carb,

    But back then not great suspension. Broke a couple of frames. But nothing like flying a MC. Hmmmmmmmmm I guess I do kinda miss the 70's
