"Yes, Mr. Boss, I'll try to keep both tires down. I generally do that because it's safer to be under power when crossing bumps. Hopefully going slower won't cause me to crash. Does this business carry insurance to cover parking lot hazards?"

Never heard of these "speed bumps" you talk of, you must mean the "fun bumps" placed on road to entertain dual sports bikes forced to endure paved roads!

There are some RR tracks on Hwy 68 just south of Tellico Plains, TN that I just *HAVE* to get air on every time I cross them. Love it.

The 950 handles it great but I completely bottomed out my 955i Tiger doing it.
