Catching air on my Guzzi

Those who know me know that I am usually a sweepers sweeper so when I catch air whats up. Traveling I-10 west on the HOV lane (in the HOV lane) before the Gessner exit there is a fairly large bump. Traveling at my speed +-15 mph I actually caught a bit of air. Traveling in the triple digits and hitting that bump unexpectedly may mean a trip to the hospital (if your unlucky). If your on motard and want to catch some air on I-10 during rush hour be my guest however everyone else please be careful.

Two slabs of concrete not lined up so one is kinda popping up? Top of an overpass? Do I have the right place? It's been a bump for quite some time, but haven't traveled that stretch since late april. And I generally avoided it.

The spot, right after Blalock and just before the Voss Rd exit, in the HOV (east bound) has a bad one.

Some Caddy came up on me quick, so I gassed it and got up to 120 and stood up to absorb the bump with my legs so I wouldn't catch air and he still passed me and hit that sucker ! The front suspension fully extended and his front wheels came off the ground, an inch or two. I laughed my off, while slowing back down and he continued on speeding

I know that spot well but didn't think anyone could catch air on it. I haven't ridden over that spot on the bike, but it makes the car get very light. I'd imagine you'd need to be going 90+ to catch air.
