    Fat Skinny

    I've been too busy to take photos lately,(I've been riding...honest!) but Fattire-B apparently has time to stack wood wherever he finds it, then ride on it.

    Fatty-B tames his latest creation on his Spot:



    No live trees were harmed in the making of this stunt.




    Can't wait till he shows me this one in person.

    The right one will give you mad confidence, this one felt like sidewalk.



    A few more times here and I'll be ready to fall off anything fatty can build.

    Thanks for posting that Zill. I was gonna post it up this morning "me, my spot, and a stick". That is the highest skinny I've made yet - about 4.5 feet at the highest part and about 6 - 7 inches wide. I learned real quick that I was able to wheelie drop safely (well somewhat) at that high part early on in my attempts . I'm not used to the downward sloping skinnies so it took some getting used to - MUCHO Fun!

    I'll show it to you Saturday

    Nice work with the saw. That's one thing we don't have enough of here in SoCal, grade A dead wood which to cut skinnies from. We just have, for the most part, desert scrub. Any trees we do have are in state parks or forest service, which cutting there?....

    Nice riding too!
