Pictures of your suspension bottomed out

I've only got one picture to contribute to this, but let's see pictures of your skid plate sitting on the ground.

Here's my entry. On my Super Sherpa on some BLM land near Grand Junction, CO:

This would classed as VMX these days but it is actually me back in 1979ish on my new KTM 125RV.
Those were good times!

Coming up short on a jump at an mx track. Plush suspension on my WR250 is definitely not suited for this stuff!

Me at an MX track on my KLX250S. Wrong tool, but it's what I've got.
