In my Hang gliding days I would dream of doing that with the HG. I always knew it wouldn't happen because of. Who the hell would want to spend all that time climbing a rock? :D

Yup. I thin the only way to truly be impressed now is if someone were to jump from the moon back to earth.

They have pits filled with foam blocks which is the only reason they can do it. They have a little crane next to it to get the motorcycle out. I'm sure they do it a few hundred times before trying it on the ground. These pits are pretty much the reason for all these insane things you see whether it's a bike, skateboard, snowboard etc. When I was young back in the 80's doing things I thought were nuts it was nothing but bandages head to toe. LOL Foam pits? Hahahaha Watch this Joe! Our foam pit was the side of culm bank, I still got some black embedded in the one knee.
