Kenso jumps

The kenso trails are basically split up into two sections:
– hilly wooded trails area
– open sand pit area

In the open sand pit area there are some sandy hills to climb and a huge oval track, but the main cool thing is an existing tabletop jump which was a total piece of shit. Maybe it was good at one point, but it’s so beaten down now. The take off was basically rolled over so there was inverse curve to it, and the landing was the same way. Inverse curve and too steep. I doubt even a modern dirt bike could’ve jumped it as it was. It was also 25′ to clear it.

After trying to jump it a bunch it was obvious it needed some work, so Adam and I went down there with some shovels and fixed it up. The take off now has an actual lip, and the landing is 5′ closer and mellower. So it’s a 20′ total gap.

For us on a 175… Middle of 3rd gear to clear it.

Oh, and we made a 2nd little jump after the 1st which will be fun once we make the take off bigger.

    Sick, those things are cool. I’m headed to Virginia today to pick up a 1968 Yamaha DT1. Super stoked.

  5. Adam says:

    Damn Carson, you have quite the line up now. How’s the 400 and 360 you picked up last year (if i remember correctly)

  6. Carson says:

    I’ve got a handful now Adam. I actually never picked up that 360 last year, I bought my BMW 2002 instead, but my buddy picked up the 400, I’ll have to send you some pics of it. Its mega clean.
