I finally done it :lol:
Driving up the face of this monster {15' tip} was a life changing experience for me. Unbelievable...i couldn't even pull off any type of victory run after that {making it}...my adrenalene was pumping so hard :awww:
It may be commonplace for most here, but i can assure you...if you mess up a gear on the approach on this hole you are done.
Third gear .....wide open.
It was even moreso iffy, after seeing a guy eat it hard a few days ago on this gap.
I'm the only enduro to take the plunge so far. 40' isn't a great distance but the approach is brutal :thumbsup:
Anyway, i'm still really pumped....& done it about 10 times after for the camera....okay i did manage to wipe out the last time ...well after the landing {bottomed out} :lol:
What is the hardest setting i can acheive on my 04 WR ???
Or should i say....how do i go about attaining that. I will upgrade springs when feasable.

I feel your joy! That is awesome.

I ride off-road, and not real skilled at jumping. Last week, I got on a moto track for the first time. Tables are no problem, but the doubles, with that gap, is a mental block for me. I can do the bike length ones, but nothing like 40'.

Way to go! Keep it up, but keep the rubber side down!
