    ... and if we just ... metal ramps

    any one ever hit a metal motocross kicker.
    i hit one for the first time on FRIDAY. its not a huge one but its 6ft tall.
    it out at the local pro Quad racers house. it was only a 6 FT gap but it was bad. hit it 3 times and finally got a crankflip down. ill be out ther after school and were going to move the ramp to 20ft and get a tow from the quad and thow it down. ill try to get some pic's.

    ive hit like a 18 foot mx kicker in to a foam pit at travis pastrana's house last year, it was pretty sick, he towed me in and i thought i was gonna wipe so hard but i just stayed firm and kept to it and launched way up..the crane thing was cool too.
