    Any of you guys or gals.... ever get that TL in the air - here in San Francisco we have some very nice launch pads and I am getting pretty nice unweighting of bike - no air though.

      Played there in San Fran quite a bit back in the 80's!! Nothing like the hills to make you feel good about your air time!! Try launching a Supermotard up there for some real fun!!

        I don't have any pics, but we have a road not far from here that I regularly get both wheels off the ground.
        Nice smooth landing as well.
        The first time I did it I was behind my buddy on his ZZR 1200. Ever see one of those airborne

          Yes sir! No pics though. I used to launch all the time coming home from work. Had a hill with a set of RR tracks right in the middle. You could gun it going up hit the lip of the tracks sail right over and land on the up hill without missing a beat with ease.

          Anyone on Ft. Bragg....Honeycut road right past the fire dept. Also down on long street going to the E club first right going into housing you can do it too

            Got two peaked bridges I cross on my way to work. Get air every time. No pics though. How about me clearing a 55 ft double on my YZ? That doesn't count huh.

              So you guys get air all the time on th street bikes - Ok, damn nice work I'm sure. Once I get my dirt bike and start riding that thing enough to have eliminated the paranoia of launching my street bike I will have a story myself - at this point all I am doing is total "unweighting" of the suspension.

              All this aside, I noticed this mornig on my way to the office that I have blown another suspension dampener bolt - my second one. Arggg - the rear wheel is bouncing like it is, well - completely undampened. Back to the shop for what i expect is a bit of free parts and service.

                Yeah I've gotten some air on the street. There are a couple of places around here where I gas it and launch both tires off the ground every time I go by there (provided there's no cops around), the TL jumps like a big dirt bike. Also when riding off a curb after parking on the sidewalk, i gas it and get a bit of air and let the motor rev up a little, land it and ride off, much to the dismay of the pedestrians. No pics though...
