At the request of my employer

I have been asked to please keep both wheels of my 950 Adventure firmly on the ground over the (Rather perfectly angled) speedbumps. Seems someone didnt like my airtime over them.

Near the flight line, if you got clearance should not be an issue.

East Tennessee State cop said the same thing to me as I was launching my motard over the speed bumps that were like small table tops.

That’s funny! I to work on an airport and there it a fuel farm that I pass by on my way. They have it built with a depression so when the fuel trucks a filling up and if they have a spill it’s all contained, anyway there is a decided ramp with a lovely concrete landing pad straight away it’s easy to get 2 feet of air off that…….

Not that I ever do......

found a nice set of railroad tracks near me that going the 25mph speed limit you can get a pretty good launch off them. did actually have a police car behind me once but he may not have seen it or didnt care. http://youtu.be/eXOP38l7jHM

My employer requested I sell my bikes, and go back to mountain biking. I agreed until my wounds almost healed and I could put a boot on.
