    ... and if we just ... Doodoboi gits sum!

    Doodoo getting his first clean run on the Wasabi gap. There's a bit of profanity (he was pretty psyched to get this one) so be forewarned.

    Thanks again Kenny for the great pep talk and letting me speed check you off of it. It made it alot easier than it seems in my head! Next time I'll trip down the profanity

    Hahaha funny thing is the first time I did it, it was exactly that! A taco-spalt sashimi type of ending. Hence the overly dramactic dramatization at the end of the video! haha

    Oh and I am still riding on that HIGH...........I hope it never goes away if it does guess I would have to go back and do it again!

    Nice job Doo Doo. That is a huuuge gap. Definitely bigger than it looks on vid. It was too big for me to try first time down and riding solo. I rolled off that rock to the right which was sketch enough. Maybe with the proper instruction and pep talk I can attempt it someday.

    BTW. Nice Podium.

    See the sig below. I think it applies in this case. VVVVV

    I had a car pull out in front of me one day so right before the take off I tried to jump off the back, my bike bucked me over the bars and I went flying into the backside of the landing. It hurt REALLY bad. I broke my wrist and some ribs. I did however ride out to the bottom on the road. It's good to have a spotter on that one.

    That is why we ride....you can't smoke, shoot, pop a pill, drink, snort a line or anything else to get that high but doing it...

    kinda makes every other drug pale in comparison doesn't it?

    Stoke is my drug of choice...WHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    Now go out and get some shredders!!!!

    I think from take off to the edge of the landing transition is about 18 feet but with speed it's pretty easy to go around 25 I'm guessing. We measured it about 6 years ago so I don't remember exactly what it was.

    I think it is, maybe only 15 but it's in that area. I'll measure it out this week and see.

    I've never even thought to measure that thing since it would probably be scratching at the back of my mind the next time I rolled up on it. It definitely looks WAY worse from the bottom though. You can see just how big the rock takeoff is and how deep that hole is. Denial is awesome

    easiest 20 ft on the mountain. Come around the turn, let go of the brakes, don't do anything stupid. Works every time.

    Nicely Done Arvin

    I remember your yells from hitting the fat mans pass gap and this brought back smiles. BTW how do I sign up for the "Better Ride with Kenny B" classes???

    Just watched it with sound. Even better. You sold me on a Big Bike. I guess the Monocog wasn't the way to go after all .
