I know, I know. It's not great for the machine, but I bought it to have fun with.

Not too bad for the first jump I built and first time jumping I thought. With a little tweaking on the jump, it'll be better.

Little jumps like that aren't going to hurt the scrambler.

Just be careful... and as far as the machine goes, just be mindful of the weight of the scrambler as you get braver. It has the suspension and suspension travel to handle quite a bit with no ill effects. But you can't air it out like you could a 375 lb sport/racer. You'll bottom out the suspension with the weight of the machine after you air it out a certain height.

Thanks for the advice. I'm worried I'll get too brave. My buddy has a Kawasaki 400 rice rocket thing that I want him to bring over and see what that can do.
