There are some railroad tracks over by Washington Ave. that we hit sometimes on the tards. I don't know if my are big enough to do it on a big bike. Fastest I ever went was 70mph and caught some pretty good air. Another anonymous guy on a DRZ hit it in 5th gear pinned and went higher than the street sign on the other side. He could have cleared a car parked on the tracks it was awesome.

I used to hit certain railroad crossings on my old tard as fast as I could. The air wasn't that awesome but it's fun as !

There's a hill around Livingston where we ride (I have no idea what the name of the road is), but if you're on the throttle doing triple digits, the front end comes right on up. Well, that's what I heard anyway

I'm waiting for Travis Pastrana to set up some ramps for a 180mph jump on a sport bike. The world record is around 117 yds.
He could beat that easy. Wouldn't have to get a huge amount of height because of the speed.

I'm kidding but it would be bad !

Dumble and Harrisburg area

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Dumbl...31.65,,0,30.61

Its almost a straight incline, jumped it once on my drz and never went back scared the out of me.

I jumped the railroad tracks on houston ave. on my sport bike when I landed I was looking at my head lights... Now I make sure I slow down before I hit it.

I caught this hill by byrdmans house on my CBR and my front wheel came about 5 ft off the ground..

Yeah just dont do it heading south. There was an accident a few years back where traffic back and cause a good multi-car pile up.

Probably closer to 90mph but he had start about a mile away to get up to speed. It was pretty cool because I was going about 65 and we hit it at the same time. He just flew above me in the next lane. I had to look up to see him.
