    Not sure, but I think the biggest I've seen is the drop pictured on the cover of Disorder III
    Freewheel Burning http://www.freeride-entertainment.com That thing is so sick and the landing will
    make you.....well you need to see it to believe
    it....way more than 8m, probably in the neighborhood of 13m....shoot I dunno know maybe more...it's
    frig'n gargantuan!!!

    I think there might be some footage of it on the downloadable teaser. Awesome flick!

    ask in alt.bike.flop

    > ya gotta have balls for that

    ya gotta have no sense for that

    Watch all of the floppers last and last...NOT. I'd bet that none of them last half as long as Evel
    Knievel and he was the original flopper.

    The beauty of the footage in the video is the truck you could see in the photo. If you see the film,
    you get a better shot of the truck. From afar the truck looks like a full-size pickup. But noooooo,
    it's a tricked out mid-size 33,000 GVW commercial series type truck (don't know the make) and it
    makes the drop look smaller than it is.

    Fun to watch, not worth the recovery time to try...

    Executed with a double backflip I believe.

    On a different level (i.e. without a parachute), Mats highest air on a quarter-pipe is around 28
    foot above the deck of a 24ft tall ramp. So thats a 28 foot drop, into a vertical landing, on a
    rigid bike, with no brakes: http://www.teampain.com/painprivate-9_5.html

    make it not sure what the highest is that he's made.
