    You missed my sarcasm. And many more of you are missing Highway Gnar's failed attempt at humor.



    I ski double black diamonds.

    In my defense, when Highwaystar refers to himself fruit booting, I'm going to believe him

    Ok. I want a pic of HS on that bike for proof. And no weird pseudo-emo look on his face either. This could be a great photoshop contest.

    He'll need to include today's newspaper in the shot to prove it too.

    I don't think my bike has enough suspenaion to jump like that.

Baskets help, but are not necessary.

    I'm talking about hopping the bike up while moving, not while standing in one place. Why would anyone do that? He looks silly.

    Anyone know what the name of that song is in the soundtrack of that video? Got a nice funky beat to it!

    apply the same physics while you're moving. He was demonstrating while standing still so that easier for people to see the motion involved, which is exactly as I described. Get the front tire up as high as you can, thrust your weight forward and the bike flattens out lifting the back tire off the ground.

    maybe you should stick to fruit booting if that's too difficult for you to figure out

    Band/Group - Lo Fidelity Allstars
    Song - Battleflag
    Album - How to Operate with a Blown Mind

    I downloaded that track after watching the vid a few times.
