Jumped my bike!

Recommended Posts

Today was a interesting one. Topped the bike off with 89. Been running 93. Mpg was 56. Been getting 52. Awesome mpg for so much fun. To start with I popped a wheelie taking off from a light unintentionally.  Then on a county road, there is a ramped railroad crossing. I hit it a little too fast. I was standing on the pegs. The bike got a little air time.  After this i hit some lose gravel and had a little spin action taking off. Then on my way home there was a raised up spot in the asphalt that I managed to nail. It made the bike jerk to the side a little.

 

All in all a fun day with a little added excitement. Since I passed the 600 mile mark, I am pushing the bike a little harder.

No video. 😕It wasn't a Duke boys jump! LoL  I guess the wheels came up an inch or two. Front wheel wobbled a little when it landed. Not going to try it again. Didn't want to jump it when it happened.

Sounds like a typical ride for me on the FZ.

Don't stop, that's where the fun is at! There's a ramped train track crossing like that in a small town I used to live in that I used to love jumping with my old XL 500. The faster I hit it the better it felt. I didn't get real high off the ground, between 2 and 3 ft. at most but I felt like Evel Knievel up in the air looking down on the cars going the opposite way. They must've thought I was the scourge of the earth, ha! I miss that old POS, it was so much fun.
