Always Plan Your Stupidity
This is my 1984 ATC 250R when I was practice jumping for the camera to see if I could make it over my car. Back then I was satisfied with a bench seat from a picnic table and several layers of plywood for my fabricated ramps. I also never used a return ramp so landings were a bit rough at times. (Not enough plywood I guess)

Well, I only jumped it once and barely made it so I figured that was good enough. Now, with quads and better suspension, this jump is no big deal but back then jumps like this were at the edge of a three-wheeler's limits before damage would result.
