Somehow this just seems wrong, like it shouldn't work or she should get smacked on the ground at 50mph

I'd try it after I watch ten other people do it first....but man...who was the first...like Joe says...the test pilot. Jeez, a person could get hurt.

I like the way the guy on the back of the quad...jumps at one point when they were loading up her up....you know...like he was scared she might fall out of the harness at 4 ft off the ground...then proceeds to launch that bitch like a clay pidgeon.

Basically it appears the rednecks are having all the fun and doing some pretty good engineering.

I wouldn't do either.

But that's just my 48 year old sense of mortality and fear of pain talking.

I've been around long enough to see some of the "what if's" happen.

I'd rather race a motorcycle.

Did anyone else notice the missing sod at the center point? Could this be where people sometimes bounce or ricochet off the ground?

The whole contraption is probably the result of a couple cases of beer & a rural location... no constructive distractions in their one horse mountain town. Idle hands are the devil's workshop. I've cooked up dopier schemes while under the influence. Imagine what those guys could dream up if they had boobie stunt chick for a willing guinea pig.

The best part? No helmet... or any other safety gear for that matter.

That is the coolest thing since cool things have been around.

Holy cow she went flying... I thought they were going to launch her into a lake or something.

Why is it that dipshit guys can get their cute girlfriends to try crap like that? I tried to take my wife rock climbing once. She got 10' off the ground and fell apart into a crying mess.

Same thing happened after I talked my wife into an MSF course. She bailed out in tears, at 10:00 sat morning.

i think it would be pretty cool to build one of those on a dock that launches a guy on a peda bike right off ot the end of the dock, lol dock jumping to the max there.

p.s. little 1 hourse towns rule, u can get away with so much stuff there it isn't even funny

have you seen jackass2? they have matt hoffman on a bike with a rocket. at one point the bike comes out from under one guy and flies about 75" into the air. then they do a guy in a wheel chair. its of course off of a ramp at the end of the dock. hoffman does a pretty nice flip.

pretty funny.
