    It looks like he got his butt-cracked cleaned at the same time. Ouch!

    That middle shot is great. Amazing to see a stop-action of the frame absorbing the landing. Look at the lefty blowing through its travel, and the deformation of the brake cable. Great photos. Painful crash.

    LOL. We had a blast yesterday trying to huck everything in sight and that's one of the new ones that we found. It's steeper than it looks, with a really ugly roll-in... and to top it off you have to make a 90 degree turn within about 8 feet of the drop otherwise you go over the side of the hill. All three of us who attempted to huck it from that takeoff ended up going over the side because we'd blow the turn in the loose landing.

    It didn't hurt at all though... just some sage brush action.

    Our ride was quite a dropfest yesterday, with the highlight of Max doing a monster wheelie drop!

    Winston took an excellent photo of Max's wheelie drop... I'm going to have to bring pads and a full face so I can try this! :-D

    Wow, nice pics, thanks for the link Termie. I didn't think you could do those kinda things on an ellsworth. Your friend must really trust in his "lifetime warrenty".

    Yeah, there is something and it's a 90 degree right hand turn about 8 horizontal feet beyond that takeoff. The laws of physics can't be denied!

    Nice try though

    He's a teenager and rides insanely well. Like I mentioned in a prior post, this isn't even his bike that he was riding... and he said it was sort of sketchy with the unbalanced front/rear travel (putting his front-center too far forward) but yet he was going for everything!

    I think it really helps that his dad built him jumps and stunts in their yard!

    Damn physics!

    I *think* that it could eventually be done. You just have to flick the bike a little in the air to help get it turned, then hope to stay upright when you land, then take a strong pedal stroke to try and pivot the front end around the rest of the way... then pedal on Garth!

    Ok, well at least it all sounds good in theory.

    He makes that drop look easy, or is it that the Rogue makes that drop look easy! Either way nice photos and that is a scary arse drop too! No real run off other than blowing through the dirt road and falling down the other side. Several of my freinds have seen the brush and rocks down that embankment.

    Great pics, you guys have large marbles.

    This one really shows the impact at the bottom... Check out the chain and rear der. cable!

    I was gonna post that picture as well, but becasue of the chain, I love what's going on with it.

    Another sweet compression photo is Max's rear only landing. (by the way, I can't say enough about how at ease he looks doing all that, and how much fun he's simply having)

    Teflon Termie, it looks like the fork pushed you over to the right. are you sure that fork is balanced on there?

    Nevertheless, its nice to see the gnards in charge.

    How much taller over your head is the drop from the bottom.? looks like an 8 or 10 ft drop.

    Tony E's minions are probably filing that photo away right now. I'll bet he's getting heartburn over that drop.
    Want to ride in this life and the next? Ask me how.

    I thought that looked like a wheelie drop. I'm guessing you have to do it that way, otherwise you might clear the transition area and land on the road.

    And to think I use to be able to ride to this place from my back door!

    The start of the usable tranny area is probably around 9 feet for the drop in Max's photo.

    The rock formation outgrowth, combined with the very short tranny makes the drops really heart-pounding!

    The photo sequence is a little late in the drop, but I clipped a pedal at the takeoff for this drop, and that's why I'm nose-down and low coming into the tranny area. <img src="https://www.fooriders.com/webmain/modules/PNphpBB2/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif">

    Been there, done that. Those pics were taken at Santiago Oaks, in SoCal. Up until a year ago, that was my playground. Hey Termie, did you guys hit the boulder drop at the bottom of Chutes?

    We didn't have time to go down Chutes but that's a great shot and will be a good reminder for next time! We played at the top then blasted down Waterfall/Toads as fast as we could; I was in my top gear and spun out at times! ...then went back up and messed around on Bobcat.

    It's great that there seems to be so many current/former Socal people in this forum!

    The winter rains have changed the transition a little bit:
