Default ya know how far 61 feet is?

For you Canadians thats like 20 meters....I think. Anyways, as most of you don't know, I race quads. I have an 05 YFZ 450, piped, some suspension work, but mostly stock. I've been racing for a little under a year, and I've gotten decent. Anyways, my buddy and I were out at a local track, (www.toesmxp.com (shameless plug)), egging each other on, and the end result was both of us flying over a 61 foot triple. IT WAS FREAKIN' INSANE!! I'm a little shaky still, but I'll see if I can get some pics next time out.

Kinda looks like this

................/\..../\........./\ The first bump is the takeoff, the second bump is the "double", and the third bump is the "triple". It'* scary cause you're jumping over a landing to another one....

61 feet is incredible...!!!

<~~ ATV nut here too.

My fun is taking a YFM 660 Grizzly dressed with tires, skids, winch, and other assorted crap off the ground and getting over 1,000 lbs flying through the air..

Something about the feeling of being off the ground..it'* such a rush.

Too cool! I have always wanted a quad. Once I got married (and still didn't have one yet) I got my wife to ride one first chance I got.I knew she would love it. That way, once I was able to buy one, I knew she wouldn't give me a hard time about it.
And clearinga 61 foot tripple does sound crazy.

Sounds fun. I pulled ditch-hopper on mine once. Like posted above, nothing like having 1000+lbs below you about 20 feet in the air. Then hitting a tree.

61 feet is a hell of a leap. last time i went up north i did some snowmobiling. a friend of mine talked me into jumping a 2 lane road.

i actually pulled it off, but i don't think i'll ever do that again. nice jump dude.
