I'll see if I can get some better ones next time Im out. We keep fiddlen with the camera for clarity. If we knew what we were doing with the camera, we'd have lots better pic's. Besides, if I was going to super impose something, it wouldnt be something like that. Id shoot one roosting Keving Windam or something. Heck, I needed Ego help just to post the dang thing.

What is the distance ft' on the table and on the dbl.

The table looks about the same as the one I broke my foot (in 7 places) on last CINCO de Mayo 01'!!!!
That one is 90' top-top
It has a good burmed corner/downhill run , but the scary thing is that 11-12' ramp!!!!

LOL Ego you rock!

Thumping hucker, the run at that table is kinda all over the map. After they water the track, the run at it is really slick, and you (or at least I) spin the tire all the way to it. Scary, ya hit the face wound up pretty hard in 4th all sideways and slimin out the mud and ya get the moment of truth deal coming at ya like "shoot, Am I goin fast enough here, do I brake and try to roll this or take the shot when I come up short?" You wouldnt think coming up short on that is a big deal, but when ya do, ya drop outa the sky like a freakin rock and hit like a ton of bricks. I remember once noticing all the mud flyin off my bike like a big splatter after coming up about 5 feet short. Got real friendly like with the bar pad.

Hey Shawn MC,

What is your riding skill level, or how long have you been riding?

I started about 3 years ago and I know I wouldn't jump that table yet. Hopefully when I get to "Ancient" status my cajones will have grown enough for an attempt.

Id call myself, a VET Intermediate. Ive ridden on and off my whole life. I rode moto back in the 80's for a bit, but got tired of being in the hospital. :) But I met some people in the early 90's that rode the dunes. So it had been a good 9 years since throwing a leg over a dirtbike, and these folks said come out with us. I rode this ladies old beat up 200x three wheeler. Gawd what a hunk! Anyway, we went over to Oldsmobile hill, and one of the guys says, hey ya wanna ride my CR500 up the hill, thinkin Im gonna say no, I say "hell ya" He's all like "uh... ok" (personally, I wouldnt turn an open class two stroke over to someone Id met 20 mins ago, especially when he's riding a POS 200X). I digress, I launched that thing up Olds, and it died 1/3 of the way up. Gas off. Everybodies down there laughin at me, I turned the gas on, fired it up, spun it around and ripped up the rest of the hill. Starting half way up is a bitch. I re-lined up with a GSXR powered quad and smoked him. I rode it back and got off, and was re-hooked. And hooked bad. That was thanksgiving weekend. By Christmas, I had my own CR500. The I met my wife, and her sisters husband rode moto. So I tried a bit on the CR. Im good, but not THAT good. He was smokin me left and right, till I got my thumper. I love my thumper.

Nice air Shawn, can you or someone else over her explain to me how to post a picture? Ive tried to copy and past, drag from desktop in, and there is no paperclip or attatch tab like on my email so I cant figure it out. Good thing Im a better wrench than computer operator. Bad thing is I can build a computor but not operate one. Must be a Gene thing. Any help would be appreciated.
