Why are these men riding a miniramp?

Egbert's Mini

Haven’t you heard? Because it rains during the winter in Portland. Egbert’s got a micro-miniramp in his garage, complete with a low ceiling and pool coping. I swear this thing is less than 3 feet tall. Sometimes the amount of fun you can have is inversely proportional to the size of the transition. Pics after the jump.

Very cozy, but fun. This ramp pretty much takes up the whole (small) one car garage, with about 2 feet to spare between the door and the back of the narrow platform. And because it’s Portland, is has the requisite extensions and grind bar that can be added just to make it easier to slam. Click the pics to enlarge.

Rob is about to fakie his way back into the ramp.
