Definitely my weapon of choice

If you're tempted by the dark side, don't settle for less!

Anyway, the following were taken by my trail buddies.
I recently took some bigger drops while riding with the Big Boys,
Unfortunately, Big Boys do not stop to take photos... :)

I hear ya. I never seem to get any photos from days riding the lifts at Diablo, as stopping would just kill the flow. Only end up with trail-riding photos... photos give everyone else a chance to catch a breather...

I too love my UZZI, but the only thing we have in common with that first pic is the same brand and color riding shorts! Nice drop Jbog :D
Thanks. So are you saying you never ride that Uzzi off ledges and drops? Gotta give the Uzzi some lovin', or she might start cheating on you... ;)

some recent ones...

I'm sick at home :( , so at least I'll share with you some recent photos of Uzzi & Me.

1st one is a 7' jump which sends you to a shallow (but safe) transition down a great single.

The 2nd is a nice constructions which involves:
a turn + skinny + turn + seesaw + drop + small gap + slop...
well, coming down the seesaw was faster than i expected...
I got lucky and somehow cleared that small gap just by holding tight and closing my eyes...
I'll try to add some style next time around ;)

The 3rd actually documents the larger jump of that day at about 9', unfortunately the photographer took it from a bad angle which completely hides the landing area (which was sweet)...
anyway, since this all area is new and "under construction" I had the honor to be the first one to take that jump.. it sure made my day..

Nice bike man!
Is that an Uzzi DH or SL? What year?
It's an SLX I got it in 2001. Originally red, I got bored at work and blasted the paint off and hit it with primer. It originally had the 6" linkage but I got the 7" link plates and Fox Propedaled the shock. It feels bottomless.

Great pics! Nothing like pics of luscious greenery to inspire lustful thoughts of spring. As for now, all we've got is a lot of leaves and snow... but here are a couple recent videos I shot in the snow:
Great videos! But I can't believe you let snobby poseurs like 'Zilla come along.

j/k 'Zilla. Nice drops!
