Well...I found a friend of my cousins who has a backhoe...
SO I got an idea...
what if I took said backhoe, and dug out a halfpipe in the ground...
then rode a dirtbike around in it?

think it would catch on?
think its impossible?
lemme hear your thoughts....

IMHO, no. It would be hard to get the bike from 0* back to 180* without going super high. Going Super high will add more forward momentum, and you'd be outside the halfpipe when trying to land...............or so it seems.....

no, its called vert...
the top few feet of the halfpipe is straight up...
so when you go up and out of the pipe, you go straight up...
so you come straight back down and meet up with the surface of the pipe gently...

Dude, I've seen a video somewhere where they do just that only in a swimming pool and with trials bikes.
