Thought some of you would get a kick out of these pics.

My buddy Tom practicing his jumps on his very heavy BMW GS ..

What? Now landing pictures? And what's with your buddy valuing his lower body more than his upper body (by the choice of gear worn)?

Well not pavement actually .. its sort of an unimproved road in a quarry that we ride in. Loose stones etc.
hmmm...I don't know how i missed that. now I look again, that is clearly not asphalt.

your friend has bigger cojones than I in any event.

Comment from co-worker:

"Oh, that's not that hard to do. You just gotta get up a lot of speed. Enough to knock your ass out when you land, see? That way it doesn't hurt."

He was flying ... and it looked really really sick the first few times he did it.

But Tom is a dirt rider first and foremost. Other than adjusting for the weight of the bike, I dont think he thought it was any big deal.

He made the same jump about 15 times in a row.

It's hard to tell, is he jumping onto flat ground or trying to land on a downslope? The second pic looks like he is trying to hit a down slope.
