title says it all.

this is supposed to be the big AM bike, but I lack the skill/balls to drop anything bigger than a couple of feet (even that terrifies me).

So what is the most extreme thing people have done on this bike?

Photos would be a bonus!

I didn't measure, but feel comfortable saying 2.5 - 3 feet easily.
Come on he said how big a drop 2.5 to 3 feet is just a big step not a drop :D :D

Plenty of old jet owners do 3 feet.

Who is pushing the WFO ?

Anything under 4 ft is not a test for the Rip9.

No pics to be had (I need to bring some friends with good camera's out on rides more often), but I dropped the tallest drop zone ramp at Keystone testing the WFO 9. I believe the drop was between fifteen to twenty feet (great transition at the bottom).

The biggest drop I've taken is 8ft. Unfortunately I don't have video of the 8 footer, all I have is a video of an 6 foot drop that I did poorly. I was going too slow on the take off and didn't pull up quite enough. Not much style but at least I rolled away with the rubber down.

Hey legs hurt, are you on a Rip or a WFO of that drop?
