First one yes, second...personally I'd need a lot of training up. Never really land on perpindicular railings much, so I'd be nervous of the slip.

Looks pretty damn nice though!

Are you going over the sign?  I wouldn't trust making any contact with it...not because of the base (that looks sturdy) but the sign inserts.

hard to tell but that sign is closer to the road and out of the way.
the sign isn't there anymore,(Google maps screenshot) I don't think i would try it if it was in the way anyway.

First one yes, second...personally I'd need a lot of training up. Never really land on perpendicular railings much, so I'd be nervous of the slip.

Looks pretty damn nice though!
the second one scares me to all get out, but I want to do it really badly for some reason. last night at the gym I only worked on perpendicular rail pres so i'm feeling more conferrable with them.
this first one I need to look at again because that roof comes out pretty far, but to be certain I need to look at it in person

That first setup looks like a lot of fun if that green thing is a rail.    The second looks like a 10 to 12 foot jump to a parallel pre with only a width of 3inches at most.   That looks sketchy .    Good luck landing that and give a video of it,  I would love to it in action.
