No sir, but my lack of stones for jumps stems from spending a week in the hospital for arm reconstruction via 2 surgeries from a bmx crash 10 yrs ago...

Because i know what can happen when it goes wrong... A $35,000 arm, 9 screws, a plate, 43 staples, a month and a half in a cast, a month and a half of therapy, and a 50% chance of having NO use of your arm at all...thankfully i have 99% of the original motion, and 90% of the original strength... But i never want to find myself in that situaton ever again.....

nice jump

I'd like to have about 14 beers and run the YZ400f at WOT in 5th gear about 70mph over that jump. Gonna get some serious air-time n make you squids-n-Bubba proud.
thats why I got da racetech modded out superbike, just for a nice little hill like dat.
n if I break my hand, arm or whatever I gotz me another one on da other side.

Moose, I'm guessing that jumps 3rd gear? Depending on how far you want to gap on it?

I know all too well what happens when you don't commit to a double:


Or Overshoot a tabletop:





That being said, this past year I've gotten far more comfortable in my jumping (I'm thanking my neighbors coaching for that).

And now I wanna go back to Byron this weekend.

The last time I attempted a huge double I ended up with a plate and 9 screws in my tibia.
No more for this old man!

After my shock breaking situation, I listened to my neighbors advice: It's better to overshoot a jump than it is to come up short & that they're designed to be gone over as fast as possible.....so GO FAST

I evidently thought I was going fast enough.

I hope not. I watched a vid of a 125jr race and the kid was airing off it.

If there's one thing I dream of doing on an MX bike right now, it's Larocco's leap.

But hey, it looks like 3rd gear tapped on a 450 just about makes it....

You can see the Elevator in the back gound of this shot, it's a simple step down double, some guys do triple out of it too.
