I think it depends on the jump and where you hit the knuckle. Some knuckles are steep and hitting them almost perpendicular feels like getting shot out of a cannon at a wall, whereas the landing and beyond is usually downhill or at the worst flat. I knuckled a 40 footer last season and broke a mounting disc in the landing and had to lay down for a while. I have almost always ridden out of it if I overshoot a jump, but then again I have never completely overshot a 40 footer.

let me just say how i absolutely hate how the title of the thread is "knuckle incoming in"...why did op add the "in" at the end? it just doesen't make any sense, its so unnecessary!

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

There are more grotesque women in Government out there, for sure, in terms of physical appearance. She ain't the worst dude, lol. How'd you like to go "elbow deep inside the borderline" (points for getting reference) with Nancy Pelosi, for instance? What about ol' Godzillary?

Knuckling on step-up's isn't that bad, nor on tabletops, although it can be more likely since you need to carry good speed to clear them. Knuckling step-down wedges ... avoid it like you would avoid finger blasting Pelosi.

Mmm pelosi pelvis....
I guess when I see a knuckle coming I tuck the board as much as possible and lean forward, hoping to catch any of that landing that I can. Other than that, get loose, roll bounce. Transfer that energy and try to keep sliding. The more speed you retain the less it will hurt. I dunno. I'm more of an over shooter than a knuckler.

You take my reaction wrong though. While I can`t stand her politics, I find Sarah Palin pretty decent looking and she was smokin hot in her 20`s. Given the opportunity I would bang her in a second. I would of course need duct tape to keep her mouth shut when not otherwise in use for "other things" because her talking is an instant mood kill! My ill stomache was a result of the grahpic description provided by Fatrav...

Speaking of Michele Bachman since we have totally derailed this thread like a train wreck, a buddy sent me this:


Needless to say I disagree.

You know as well as I do that she'd pull the wink at some point during it..



..so I'd have to be behind her.... Even then, maybe.

Hah, c'mon brah that ain't my party either. In the end, it might entertain some small fantasy to take someone like Palin (or another political figure) to pound town, but the truth is there are hundreds of 19-24 year old girls all over this country that are so insecure with themselves they have to validate their self-worth by letting you drill them like BP in the Gulf of Mexico and one does not look a gift horse in the mouth.
