When Pigs fly

I know this isn't the first post on flying pigs, but here is my story.
I'm working on piloting the pig. When done right it is not a bad flight:

When coming up short on a table top and bottoming out, steering goes out the window:

I found the swamp at Lake Elsinore MX Park. The bike stopped at the water's edge, sort of like when you've seen steeplechase horses stop in front of an obstacle and the rider go @$$ over teak kettle into the brine. Pretty embarrassing when you are a goon on an XR650R at an MX track wearing camouflage TLD gear covered head to toe in mud. It doesn't taste so much like chicken. Maybe crow.

Hey Cyborg,

As long as you don't get hurt it's all good fun. I like the number 6 Honda in your pictures folder. That Little Red Pig is beautiful. :) :D

Pigs on the Wing - Part 1

You know that I care what happens to you,
and I know that you care for me,
so I don't feel alone,
or the weight of the stone,
now that I've found somewhere safe
to bury my bone.
And any fool knows a dog needs a home,
a shelter from pigs on the wing.

Pigs on the Wing - Part 2

If you didn't care what happened to me,
and I didn't care for you,
we would zig zag our way through the boredom and pain,
occasionally glancing up through the rain
wondering which of the buggers to blame
and watching for pigs on the wing.

'Dude, no it is Lake Elsinore MX Park. That is the finish line table top on the vet track. As you are pulling in to the booth it is immediately on your right just after the big 180 berm.

Needsprayer the lil' red pig is my son's 81 Z50R. It belonged to my little brother when he was little. He is now 6'3" and can't really ride it.
