Guys, that landing & almost every landing in the 2 moto's last weekend tore me up. My forks are off and at MXTUNER's shop for diagnosis. I believe both .47 fork springs are broken or the infamous "MIDVALVE ISSUE" has plagued me. This bike never landed or handled this way before & during that day the forks got progressively worse. I also am exchanging the steering head bearings/races for new as my steering feels like swiss cheese with the forks off. YamaCasi - nice pics thanks for the effort, Next time hopefully my suspension won't look like a dirt tracker from 1972. OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GA, it might help if you make it to the down side of that tabletop. Doh! :)

Scott F, it would have been a better jump, if it had a down hill side to absorb the impact. Unfortunately it was a very steep Step Up jump with flat landing zone, about 80-90ft long

Just kiddin' ya bro. I couldn't see the takeoff and thought it was a table.

Yeah, flat landings always suck. I wish track builders would take this into account a little more when designing jumps.

ScottF, no problem. That landing sure hurt like hell, every single lap.

With the bottoming cones, you won't even feel it. I'm telling you, they are wrist savers.
