I know Dave Dialogue does some great big air on Sand Dunes of St. Anthony. Check out his web site: www.wr450.com
Very impressive! :cry:

The stock springs are definitely too soft for me (I'm a lard butt.)

Here's a 70 footer.

That's pretty rad on a WR. Your videos are fun to watch. I'll have to get some pointers from you on how to ride a wheelie for so long, that is impressive.

By the way, how tall are you? You've got to be over 6'3" to make a WR look so small. Hell it looks like your on a Yami Trailway 200 in some of the shots. I'm just a little squeak that has to tip toe his way all over the place. Mini Me could probably dunk on me. I make for some pretty funny dismounts though. My next pair of riding boots will be like George Castanza's Timberlands. :cry:

I wish more people would post good quality video, I'm in for a long winter! :cry:

I still have the stock suspension with a little bit stiffer spring in the shock. I hit a 50 ft tabletop at a GP race a couple weeks back. I believe I'm now about 2 inches shorter as a result of the landing. Definitely get your suspension done before attempting to get "big air."

As for your other questions, read the manual. It details exactly how to do it.

I'm 6'2" so the WR is a good fit for me. In fact, I have it setup a bit taller than stock.

I'm glad you like the videos...hopefully you won't get too bored this winter while I'm out riding!! :cry: :cry:
