This did now go well!  :-\
Front shock was broken before attempting jumping the hole.  Back wheel landed in the hole and ended up with lights and bits and pieces flying off in all directions, except for the pilot who was in fits of laughter but managed to stay on board!  :imaposer:

yah, i get the suspension thing...but what has that got to do with a piano..the imagery does not make sense...i know i am being pedantic, but there must be a connection?

Omdat die landing nie so mooi en lekker is soos die vliegery nie!
