Thank you for that, coolest thing ever seeing daylight under those rigs
there is no problem so complex, nor situation so dire, that its solution can not be found in the skillful application of high explosives.

Howdy jvan1954,

Over the many years I have been beating the HELL out of Ural's many are the times when all three wheels have been in the air, this is the only time I have captured it on film.

It is not uncommon to catch some air on the whoopdeedos in the NJ Pines. I've both been airborne and watched my fellow riders catch air.
Keep in mind on tracks, the jumps are constructed so that the bike is landing on a downward slope, so the bike isn't landing as hard.
