The part of the track where they are taking off is called 'the mountain' at Cadwell Park and most riders do it as the go over the crest, it's a real crowd pleaser. Unfortunately the rider in red, Karl Harris did it when he was racing in Supersports & it spat the chain off the rear sprocket, ending his race. A common occurance when jumping a Supersport 600, the Superbikes are allowed a mod that helps keep the chain on. The Hawks are taking off at the same spot.

I've had mine airborn on the second day I had her. We were doing a group ride and going much to fast. I thought why is eerybody braking suddenly... aaahhh a big bump in the road, but I was too late hitting the brakes, so I thought... get her up... and opened the throttle a bit more... funny feeling the first flight... overtoke 3 friends flying... smooth landing. They told me I was up for about 30 cm with both wheels...

Last summer I did my second take off while avoiding a collision with a cager. I had to jump her into a loading dock at work to dodge a car... only about 50 cm streetlevel difference, but she was airborn

The Cadwell Park ones I posted is something that happens all the time at The Mountain. They come up the hill through the double bend & hit the crest & go light or airborne depending how brave they are :cool

I'd like to someday get someone out with me to take a couple of pics, but there are 2 places around were I can catch some air if I feel the need. I certainley don't do it often but I tell you it is quite a rush!!!
