    my weekend accomplishment

    ever since seeing the video of my buddy justin gapping the u-haul drop. i had to work myself up to do it. and sunday after riding TC BCGB, we went ahead and took a trip to the u-haul station on northbound IH-35 between rundberg and braker and i hit it up. i made 3 attempts, 1st one landed it, 2nd one laid the bike down shortly after landing it, and landed it the 3rd attempt. we measured the truck and it was 13' tall. and you landed a foot or two further down the transition. so i will confidently say it was a good 15' drop. i have video just haven;t played with them yet.

    What does said U-Haul company feel about this. I'm surprised that the cops weren't quickly involved

    ACTUALLY........ when we got there, the full size trucks were backed up to each other the way we needed but not as close as we wanted. the way it works is each truck is about 24 feet long, so they park them backed up so the trailer load doors are facing each other. making about a 48 foot runway. we got there and a mexican guy who worked there-(and probably didn't realize the liability he'd place on himself by helping us do this stunt) actually moved the trucks closer together so the gap i'd have to bunny hop over would be smaller! some black guys saw me all geared up with my bike on top of the truck and came and watched too. probably thinking "crazy ass white boys" seeing me jump off this big ass truck.

    so yeah, surprisingly, we got help from the u-haul company

    I wasn't aware Mexican was a race. The small testicles probably make you extra sensitive/grouchy.

    the rollout onto IH-35 looks like the most dangerous part. (not taking away from your huck....it took more balls than i could muster). good job.

    i should've taken a pic looking down while i was standing on top of the truck. it looked pretty huge. the thing i was worried about wasn't the landing, it was clearing the hood of the truck. if i went to slow and my back tire clipped the hood...... endo/faceplant time!

    and one of my buddies was a lookout for spots when no cars were coming even though i was able to stop right before the road...

    It is the lifeforce of the Pimp.
    It's the nectar of the Pimps. It courses through our veins all the time, and at some points in daily life it is at an exponential level. And at that point Pimp Nirvana has been achieved. Pachoota will fall from the sky and blowjobs will occur everywhere.

    Excellent huck stinkyman.

    haha my nuts must be made out of something heavy.... the third time it hit it, when i landed, i was crouched pretty far back and my nuts/gouch area hit the back of my seat and then my back tire and it bent the $hit out of my seat. regardless of whatever they're made out of, almost getting violated and ass raped by by back tire didn't feel too good

    i forgot to mention that what we didn't get on video was after that a homeless guy wearing a stainless steel salad mixing bowl as a hat did it on a unicycle!

    seriously though this morning on my way to work i saw a homeless woman sitting at a capital metro bus stop wearing a SS salad mixing bowl on her head like it was a hat. holding her hands out and talking to herself. i'm guessing the metal head gear was to protect her from aliens?
