Re: Bunnyhops... Your favorite pics or stories about stuff you hopped over

Weird. I just woke up this morning, and my last dream/nightmare? right before I opened my eyes was that I bent and then broke the end off my Race Inc. bars doing bunnyhops.

Just saying. Yes, it was a rough Friday night.

Re: Bunnyhops... Your favorite pics or stories about stuff you hopped over

One day I was riding in state college in PA, a few years after that loading dock hop. There were parking blocks, and instead of going around them, I just bunnyhopped over one... No big deal right...

Except I totally messed up and hung up my back wheel on a 6 inch parking block! My DX pedal SLAMMED into my shin, and the pins stuck in the bone... I still have a dent in my shin, and a scar. Lol.

A big part of success means you will fail at times!

Re: Bunnyhops... Your favorite pics or stories about stuff you hopped over

I still have scars on my shins from when we first started bunny hoping ditches back in 85'. I removed the bear claws and went to plastic. Then got my General op and put DX's on. We used to bunny hop everthing in our path from chains blocking private roads to off the back of flat bed 18 wheeler trailers. We did some damage just wish we had the cameras we have today. The best was the garbage can bunny hops when we would pull up to early and case the top. My shoulder hurts just thinking about it. Have not been brave enough to try anything over 1 foot now. Got to many bills to pay..lol

i busted my sh#t the other day too. i was drunk as hell and i pulled the front up but never leveled the bike out. the front kept going up 'till i was flat on my back. then the bike fell to the side. i jumped up, picked up the bike and inspected for damage. scratch on my KKT lightening cage. dude walking his dog on the sidewalk asked if i was OK, i said "no, my pedel is scratched". he gave a strange look and kept walking.

edit: my typing goes to crap after a few beers

Re: Bunnyhops... Your favorite pics or stories about stuff you hopped over

Some people were on the sidewalk the other day and none of them seemed interested that I was coming up on them. They were like four people wide and left me no room. So I did my usual thing of curb>road>curb around them. Went alright but then about ten feet later I tried to hop a rooted part of the sidewalk (tree roots pushing the slabs up like a ramp) and hung up the middle of the bike and fell over.

Didn't get hurt but it was kind of embarrassing. lol


When I bunnyhop I hear a creak and I don't know if it's my bike or my joints. Oh well.

Re: Bunnyhops... Your favorite pics or stories about stuff you hopped over

One day a bunch of us went over to Crabtree Mall in Raleigh, and parked Scott's old school wood paneled station wagon in the front row of the parking lot.

We got our bikes out, and rode all around the mall. When we got back, we were playing follow the leader and Scott bunnyhopped up onto the hood of his car up the windshield and rode across the roof and bunnyhopped back down to the ground, so each one of us followed...



Turns out a security guard had been following us, and saw our shenanigans, and wasn't pleased. He stopped us and told us we had to wait for the owner of the car to arrive and pay for any damages.

We sat there for a while, until Scott got thirsty, then he walked over, and unlocked the door, and opened the back where his cooler was and pulled out a drink.

The security guard about fell over with shock.

We all busted out laughing!

Pretty hilarious!

A little off-topic, but this happened to me with my old Focus. I was on my lunch break and was sitting on the trunk eating. Traffic cop decided to yell at me. "Does that look like a bench to you?" "It's my car, so right now yeah, it kinda looks like a bench."

Sorry you couldn't get on the force, guy.

Anyway, back to your regularly-scheduled programming. tongue
