View Full Version : Went for a ride

August 24th 03, 12:20 PM
We (Ben, Rowan and myself) went for a ride today with a friend of ours
who rides a mountain b*ke. Ben tryed doing a rather technical 7 foot
dropoff onto a nasty landing. After 6 atempts at doing this he decided
it was a bad idea. I think (don't quote me) it had something to do with
the blood!!!!


So tomblackwood this picture is to show you that you arn't the only one
to use your face as a break :D

Ben is alright but cann't move one sholder, i think he should get hard
and try it again. "I will, i just stoped because of the blood and
concusion" he is saying over my sholder. lol

And the best part is that he has WORK TOMOROW!!! HAHAHAHA

As soon a Ben is stable enough to be moved, you should lift his head off
that rat's nest. Laying in that mess cannot be good for his overall
health. :D

"7 foot technical drops?", maybe ignore the rat's nest, get Ben admitted
to the nearest Psych Ward, immediately. --chirokid--

::I think the drop is about 6 foot high, but Ben
flew a couple more feet when his Unicycle catapulted him down the hill
into the lump. His dirty complexion is due to the face plant into the
dirt on the 6th attempt. The fifth attempt was when Ben's shoulder
thumped into the aforementioned lump.

The bunk link worked for me. If only the clip were to include more of
the highlights, it only shows the grand finale. I am lurking next to the
tree to the right of Ben at the start of the clip, watching the Drop
from above (you can hardly see me in low resolution).**::

The tecnical one has a root sticking out 1/2 way down, it also have a
slight camber, and after the takeoff you need to twist to land on the
right angel.....there where angels involved, thats what made it hard...

Hmmm, might be general internet brokeness then, cos it worked fine for
me an hour or so ago. There have been a lot of 'issues' over the last
couple of days.

Not being able to download it has to do with them exceeding bandwidth
limitations.......
I grabbed it early this morning b/c nobody had been downloading it for a
while...

Ugly landing :eek: But at least you went for it!!
