Every day during my commute...

The streets in San Francisco are basically bomb sites with some asphalt poured on top... all the hills we have make for some serious fun, including getting some major air if you want... One strange thing I enjoy, is going down some of the steep hills and then wheelying the Bike.. you're wheelying, yet dead level... makes my brain spaz out a little..

The streets of SF - sounds like fun! Bullit on a bike!

First time I remember taking off was in about 1976 on a Honda 750, two up, fully loaded, top box, panniers etc, going through Coventry. There was a wicked railway bridge on the road out of town heading North, like someone had built an arch over the railway and then laid asphalt over it and said that'll do.

Wife was not happy.

I've done it before a few times on my 07 CBR600RR. Its over a rail road crossing back in my home town. Its pretty much a 4 foot kicker with a nice little lip at the end that kicks the bike up nicely. At least high enough for me to throw a tiny whip off of the jump and almost bring it back. Surprisingly the little bike wouldn't bottom out. Good thing there was somewhat of a slopped landing on the other side instead of having to flat land the bike.
