Air Time!

Well I've had the DRZ400S for a few weeks now, and I'm starting to remember what riding in the dirt is about. It's a blast! Anyway, back before video games I got dirty almost daily. One of my favorite things to do was jump. I've been a little hesitant with the new bike as it's been so long since I flew. Got over that today. Granted it wasn't huge, but the thrill is stiil there. Nothing like floating thru the air and feeling the suspension compress when I land. Woooo Hoooo!

...or in my case, feeling my shoulder compress when I land. Air is cool.

Alright, looking good! I noticed the other day road crews dumped some large mounds of dirt at one of our local riding areas. Me and a shovel could probably make a few more nice jumps!

Nice pics guys, heres one of me sending myself skyward....

A good wheelie and great sex are about the same. You always wanna go deeper, harder, higher and faster. But can you control yourself on the edge of losing it ?


God bless the freaks !

Just be careful on that DRZ, they are not made for jumping big jumps.

Here is a pic of me on my WR426.

Cool! Yeah, I know the DRZ is a little heavy for too much flight, but as long as I keep some semblance of sanity it will still be fun!
BTW, the shot of the mountains is killing this poor Florida Boy!
