Is that a full-on splatter rock? You guys are going big early.

nope, not a splatter rock.. you have to get yourself up it to get out of the big hole.. I was succesful a handful of time, then got lazy and looped my bike back into the hole.. .. good thing turnsleft had just cut the pipe out of the cement..

platic rivets are harder to find then you would think..

glad to see we're not the only ones with a back yard full of palettes, tires, etc. We just got these tires today, can't wait to get one of them buried next week!

I am going to be building more stuff in the next few weeks. I'd like to build a log ride. I have some tires I am going to put out there.
You might be aiming too high for your obstacles/challenges. Have you the feeling you have good throttle control, turning abilities, log jumping? I would think this is similiar in height to haveing 3 normal railroad ties with dirt packed behind it, like a smaller version of a semi trailer loading mound?

see trials training center, double blip I believe is the technique you need to get up obstacles higher than the ground clearance of your bike (generally speaking anything bigger than say to middle of flywheel heights)... the technique for staying on rear wheel is called Holding Pressure, and it is (IMHO) harder than those who do it well, make it look.

holding pressure is probably a little bit of practicing doing a wheelie, standing still (balance and posture). you will work up to doing it standing still, I think. I havent mastered it, because to tell the truth, I dont want to fall off the back (looping) the motorcycle, EVER. It is just like I have this natural defense like I do when I see a snake, I get pretty sceered, unless I am the only man in the group, lol then I have to pretend to be brave, which I can barely do, at a distance... Problem is, there's no women around me, to make me be even fake brave about "Holding Pressure" when I practice, either!

I just snagged about 8 wood pallets and four large round sections of log (largeish diameter - maybe 20"+, but cut into ~14-20" lengths). Any ideas of what I should do with them? Will see about posting a picture soon. I can get more short sections of log and with some luck maybe a couple of longer sections (neighboor is having a tree taken down). I can get more pallets as needed. A few of the pallets are very sturdy and in great shape, most are in rather poor condition. I was thinking if dismantling a couple of them to use as scrap wood for bolting others together. Maybe cut two pallets in half and stand on edge then use full-size pallets as ramps to them so I'd have a ledge to go up and the ramp to land on the back side (and to support the ledge of course). Sort of like this /| (but at a less steep angle as the vertical would be half the length of the ramped bit).

Don't want to spend any significant $$ at this point. I have basic hand tools, a drill and a chain saw to work with.

The yard is a small, flat patch of grass in the city so its gotta be compact and not too permanent. There's a concrete pad in the yard where a shed or something may have once resided so that can be utilized as well (its mostly ground-level, maybe a 4" lip on one side).
