Looking at the pics of all those folks going DOWN the hill I couldn't help but think they were doing it wrong.

The only one of us who has made it over the top is Ben.
I have the longest (FAILED) distance after that.

I think I'm gonna try my trials bike this year just for giggles.

Until Sunday. I think several of us may top her this year. Experience pays off. I'm assuming the top and chasing the clock. (Stupid is as stupid does)

Nope.
192 feet is my best. Maybe I should have looped it out and launched the bike for a few more feet.
Cory be careful with your patented technique on the Sherco.
Trials fenders are a little more fragile.

Ghettofabulous kill switch:






I have an extension cord wired into my side stand safety switch, wired into a fuse holder, the fuse held onto a key ring by zebra duct tape, attached to a pink rhinestone tether, clipped to my chest protector. Hey, it works!

I may not even make it up hump #1, but I have only been on this bike twice since my humerus snapped like a twig into two pieces over winter, so I hope I at least get a cheer for having balls to try.

I like it.... But that rhinestone Tether looks a touch short...

Might be better to attach to your wrist at least.


I got the tether for the Great Ape tonight.

Rokon still needs a belt guard and a testing somewhere.

I tested it. Well kind of. Should do the trick. Can always find a way to tighten onto hand though. Gonna have my stupid bionic brace on that arm and thought maybe chest be better. We'll see.
