Matt Coplon hits you with the bunny hop in his own words:
The first object I bunny hopped within significant height was a 32oz 7-eleven big gulp cup.I did it showing off in front of all the younger kids in my neighborhood. I had a nickel plated mongoose. My brother left it in Tampa when he left for college. For that alone I thought I was a bad ass. Now, with my new ability to magically lift the bike up and over obstacles, I thought myself even more so.That was, until Dale Swisher moved near my neighborhood.Dale was tall and thin, he had a pretty bad ass "Kentucky Waterfall" mullet and rode a cruiser, with 20' wheels and forks raked out so far it made his rig look like a chopper.Dale liked dip. The shit you put in your lip. He liked country music, and if I can recall correctly, he could easily bunny hop over a small human.Dale became my arch nemesis. I hated is cool hair do. His dip spit smelled wretched. And his high ass bunny hops made me feel incompetent.I hated him, because I wanted to be him.Recently, 20+ years later, he reached out to me on Facebook. I was stoked to see him doing well. With a similar hair-do, with country music references on his page, he looked like the same ol' Dale. He will probably never know what he taught me indirectly. So this little homage is a "thank you" to him for is tutelage.Of how to properly do one of the most fun tricks invented on a bmx bike: The Bunny hop.
