    That would have seriously stained my shorts... that is assuming I even stuck the landing.

      That's one way to take advantage of an eroded road.

              I didn't realize anyone was filming my test ride.:r1:

              I'm guessing from the bike parked and filming that they already knew about the road and were just playing.
              The only time I ever jumped a bike my buddy waiting at the top of the hill said that when I went through the air that the only part of me touching the bike was my hands, and that my butt was above my head. Said he had no idea how I did not wreck when I came down.... And I thought I had done a great jump..
              owning a motorcycle is not a matter of life or death, it is much more important than that

              Yah, after watching it a few more times, I realized it was deliberate. But it triggered memories of the time I rode over a 30ft. double decker extension ladder on the freeway doing around 60mph. I only got a couple feet of air but it was still a serious "oh shit" moment! The R* handled it surprisingly well and tracked perfectly straight when I came down on the other side. These things are tanks but I *never* want to do that again. ...I'll leave the flying to the birds and you cike.

                I did the same thing in the SF Bay Area. I saw the ladder come off the truck in front of me and was blocked in by traffic so I had no choice but stand up on the floorboards, throttle up & ride over it. I didn't have a Roadstar at the time, I was riding an 86 Kawasaki Police 1000, they're designed to be stood up on for visibility.
                I just hoped my front tire wouldn't get stuck inbetween the rungs. They didn't and I rode right over it, probably left a Starfish Bite in the seat of my pants. The old lady tailgating me didn't get away so cleanly, when my back tire hit the ladder I was still on the throttle and it kicked the ladder up right into the grill of her Volvo.

              My only experience was a lost mattress in the road....still don't know how I did it and didn't crash!
