    Some fun drops 10-12 feet...

    Sorry for the crappyness in the pictures, they were screenshots taken from vids from a digital camera...( boy that was fun.. )
    The first pic is 10 feet from where tire left ground to landing, the second, same thing, third is 11 feet and last was 12 feet
    Pretty fun for around where I live.... Never ever thought I would find THREE awesome drops.. And I did them all on my HT...
    Just after I uploaded these pics, on my way home I got chased by a dog... it was going like 30 mph right beside me! (that thing is dead tomorrow!)

    The reason why I had no helmet on was becuase my mom ran it over with the van

    dont bother posting how big the drop 'supposedly' was, just ride it and let the picture speak for it's self mate...

    but good to see you pushing your boundaries and stepping out of your comfort zone, nice work...

    30 seconds after he posts his pics, the first response is "Take a few feet off your estimates" You guys are compete tools. I almost cringe everytime someone posts pics of a drop now because someone is inevitably going to criticize. It'd be one thing if he called that a 20 foot drop but you're knit picking over a foot or two.
    I think this is the coolest message board cause everyone always posts up their cool riding pics....you guys are makin uncool by constantly criticizing. I'm seriously not digging this forum lately...
    Cool pics Jake. Nice drops bro.

    In the first post I did say that it was measured from where the tire took off to where it hit... So I didnt really fake how big the drop was, but did call it 10-12 foot drops... I had to get attention somehow Whatever the drops were, I consider them big for me, and they were super fun, cant wait to do them again!
    Thanks to the people who gave nice comments

    Everyone measures drops in different ways. I would say that the drops are between 6-8' feet. However, I can see gapping the drop out with some speed, which could mean that you did drop about 10'. No matter how you cut it, a helmet would have been a good idea...

    I do know that every time we take video/pics of crap it looks WAY smaller and we laugh about how easy it looks on video. "You crashed on THAT....???"

    Nice drop man, whether its 6' or 10', esp since some of that dirt looks pretty soft for a front first landing. Buy a new headcase though

    Also, I leave for a year and now everyones getting picky about whether you measured your drop to the right 1/2 inch or not wtf happened here?
