That support looks awfully weak. Perfect!

I agree with Karl: grow a pair, get a camera, and give us some laughs.

And lol at that Prelude....

Lol, of course. I've done jumps this big with dirt landings sitting on the ground, but using that slope instead is definitely gonna add hang time.

Oh, and the support is stronger than it looks

It's strong sitting there, but will it hold up to forces pushing.it both down AND forward?

Yeah, I'll post another picture later to show how it's built. It's just a mountain bike, not a dirt bike. So not that much weight

I found that I definitely had to pull the wipers, but I didn't fully detach the rest of the cowl cover.

Hah, I hate that damn show.


Won't be able to go off it today, I'm at the eye doctor and just got my pupils dialated. Plus I have to clear the landing. Tomorrow for sure
